CHOP Sequences RNA in 20,000 Cells & Produces Heart Disease Insights

Oct 8, 2018 | Cardiovascular, CHOP, RNA Sequencing Technology

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia released news to EurekAlert! announcing that their researchers— capitalizing on new RNA sequencing technology— reviewed 20,000 individual cell nuclei producing new insights into biological events in heart disease. In animal studies, the researchers identified a broad variety of cell types in both healthy and diseased hearts, and investigated in rich detail the “transcriptional landscape,” in which DNA transfers genetic information into RNA and proteins.
