Global Gene Expression
Study (RNA-Seq)

RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) is used to determine which genes and biological pathways are up or down-regulated in response to a drug treatment or a genetic condition. This global gene expression profile (transcriptome) provides a basis for understanding mechanism of action, target identification, or biomarker identification. Transcriptomic analysis can reveal the genetic signature of your treatment and how it relates to signatures of aging, toxicity, stress or other conditions.  We understand the intricacies of this powerful, yet complex tool and are ready to carry your experiment from design to data for fast and valid results. Our team of analysts will give you specific guidance on what endpoints to evaluate in clinical studies.

Global Gene Expression (RNA-Seq) FAQs

Our Global Gene Expression Study for Compound Efficacy Testing is a specialized analysis utilizing RNA-Seq which assesses the impact of compounds on gene expression. By evaluating the levels of all genes, the study identifies specific genetic pathways and cellular processes associated with the efficacy of the tested compounds. This study helps in understanding how the compounds influence various health-related functions at a molecular level.

The Global Gene Expression Study for Compound Efficacy Testing provides two key deliverables:

  • Analysis of upregulated and downregulated genes: We provide a comprehensive analysis of genes that are upregulated (activated) or downregulated (inhibited) due to the exposure to the compounds or formulations. This data is crucial in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the observed effects and helps to identify potential targets for intervention and treatment.
  • KEGG and GO analysis of genetic pathways: To further enhance our insights, we perform in-depth analysis using KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) and GO (Gene Ontology) databases. This enables us to understand how the affected reference genes are involved in various genetic pathways and cellular processes, shedding light on the precise molecular interactions impacted by the compounds.

The Global Gene Expression Study offers significant benefits for research and product development for:

  • Informed decision-making: Understanding the genetic pathways impacted by compounds helps researchers make data-driven decisions when designing analysis methods for clinical trials or selecting potential drug targets.
  • Indication expansion: The study can open up new therapeutic avenues by identifying additional health-related functions affected by the compounds, leading to potential indication expansion for your products.
  • Efficiency in compound testing: With insights into gene regulation, the study streamlines the process of identifying effective compounds, saving time and resources in drug discovery and development.
