NEBNext Ultra II Directional RNA libraries provide uniform coverage across the gene body of transcripts
Dir_RNA_Transcript_Figure1
Poly(A)-containing mRNA was isolated from Human Universal Reference RNA (Agilent #740000), and libraries were made using the NEBNext Ultra II Directional RNA Kit (plus the NEBNext Poly(A) mRNA Magnetic Isolation Module), Illumina TruSeq Stranded mRNA Kit, Kapa Stranded mRNA-Seq Kit and Kapa mRNA HyperPrep Kit. Libraries were sequenced on an Illumina NextSeq® 500 using paired-end mode (2x76 bp). This view of the 5´ to 3´coverage of RefSeq transcripts reveals consistent coverage for Ultra II Directional RNA libraries as input RNA is decreased from 1 µg to 10 ng. The changes apparent in other kits result from loss of coverage at the 3´ end of some transcripts.
