We are happy to be a sponsor of the 23rd annual meeting of the RNA Society. This meeting brings together RNA scientists from all around the world to present their discoveries during the scientific sessions and discuss inspiring ideas at the networking events.

This year the meeting will take place at the University of California, Berkeley from May 29 to June 3.

Lexogen will host a morning seminar on Thursday and an exhibition booth during the whole event. Meet us and get to know about the latest RNA analysis tools, user cases, and a special limited time offer.

Attend our Morning Seminar

Thursday, May 31, 7:45 am, the Ballroom, Berkeley City Club, 2315 Durant Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704, USA

Join us for a morning seminar and get a chance to enjoy your breakfast while learning how Lexogen QuantSeq library prep kit users:

  • detect alternative adenylation,
  • quantify differential gene expression,
  • easily assess blood samples,
  • implement a 3’ mRNA-Seq protocol at an NGS core facility.

The breakfast will be served from 7:30 am and the talks will take place from 7:45 to 8:45 am!


New features and applications for QuantSeq, the validated 3’ mRNA-Seq library preparation

Lukas Paul

Senior Manager of Scientific Affairs, Lexogen, Austria

07:45 am

The QuantSeq library preparation is a highly cost-efficient solution for the genome-wide analysis of (differential) gene expression and alternative adenylation. New features like UMIs and 96×96 unique dual indexing barcodes as well as applications such as blood sample analysis and metabolic RNA-Seq add even more reasons to move to 3’ mRNA-Seq.

Comparing 3’ TAG-seq to more traditional RNA-Seq and when it is best to switch

Matthew L. Settles

Bioinformatics Core Facility, Genome Center, University of California, Davis, Davis, CA, 95664

07:55 am

This presentation discusses a core facilities experience transitioning differential expression studies from many different organisms to the Lexogen QuantSeq 3’ mRNA-Seq assay, including experience with the hemoglobin module and unique molecular indexes.

Landscape of alternative polyadenylation in lung cancer

1Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD, 20892; 2 Institute of Molecular Life Sciences and Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, Winterthurerstrasse 190, 8057 Zurich, Switzerland; 3 Lexogen GmbH, Campus Vienna Biocenter 5, 1030 Vienna, Austria;

08:20 am

QuantSeq 3’UTR sequencing on a large series of paired tumor and normal samples from lung cancer patients indicates global shortening of the 3’UTR in lung cancer. Transcriptomic differences between European Americans and African Americans and whether smoking is a driver of alternative polyadenylation will be addressed.


The seminar will take place in Berkeley City Club (2315 Durant Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704, USA) which is a 4-minute walk from the RNA 2018 meeting building (Zellerbach Hall).
