Transcriptomic landscape of lncRNAs in inflammatory bowel disease
2015-05-13: Researchers lead by Prof Flemming Pociot from RTH publish the first paper on genome-wide transcriptome profiling of human long non-coding RNAs(lncRNAs) and protein-coding genes in Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The identified lncRNA transcriptional signature and clinically parameters suggest a biomarker potential in IBD. See the paper here.
Profiling Ribose Methylations in RNA
2014-11-26: Researchers lead by Prof. Henrik Nielsen from RTH publish the first paper on profiling Ribose Methylations in RNA based on high-throughput sequencing. Whereas high-throughput methods has now been established for DNA, searches for RNA by high-throughout technologies is just emerging. Here the authors describe their method, RiboMeth-Seq, for discovery of one of the most abundant types of modifications in RNA. See the paper here.

Serarching for miRNAs by their transcriptomic profiles
2013-07-29: RTH publish a new type of search for microRNA genes. In constrast to more traditional search strategies using the composition of the genomic DNA sequence, the strategy here directly aiming at exploiting the characteristic "finger print" microRNAs leave transcriptomic (RNA-seq) data.
RTH contributes to the RNA annotation of the porcine genome
2012-11-15: Through joint national and international collaborations RTH contributes to the annotation of the porcine genome, constituting one of the largest efforts in annotation of noncoding RNAs in a single go in a released mammalian genome sequence.
