NEBNext Ultra II RNA with NEBNext poly(A) mRNA isolation results in lower ribosomal RNA remaining
Nondir_RNA_Libraries_Figure4
Poly(A)-containing mRNA was isolated from Human Universal Reference RNA (Agilent #740000) and libraries were prepared using the NEBNext Ultra II RNA Kit (plus the NEBNext Poly(A) mRNA Magnetic Isolation Module), and the Illumina TruSeq RNA Sample Preparation Kit v2. Input RNA amount is indicated. Libraries were sequenced on an Illumina® NextSeq® 500 using paired-end mode (2x76 bp). Read pairs were assessed to be ribosomal if they contain 6 or more 32 base matches to 18S, 28S, 5S, 5.8S, 16S or 12S human rRNA sequences (mirabait 4.9). Percent rRNA remaining was calculated by dividing rRNA reads by the total number of reads passing instrument quality filtering. Percent rRNA remaining is shown from an average of three replicates. The Ultra II RNA workflow is more efficient in removing rRNA from total RNA, resulting in superior coverage over the poly(A)-enriched transcriptome.
