A prerequisite for accurate results in metatranscriptome sequencing is removal of the highly abundant 5S, 16S and 23S rRNA from diverse bacterial populations. Removal of these rRNAs is often highly inefficient and poses a challenge for analysis of the metatranscriptome.
Our solutions for metatranscriptome analysis remove >95% of all 5S, 16S and 23S rRNA from your RNA sequencing library. They are designed for RNA sequencing of complex community microbial samples from soil, water, stool and sludge. You can combine these with QIAseq FastSelect – rRNA HMR Kits for removal of human, mouse and rat rRNA for host-microbe studies.
