Detection and quantitative analysis of messenger RNA molecules in a biological sample. RNA-seq allows description of the transcriptome, which is key to connect the information in a genome with its functional protein expression.
three prime untranslated region (3′-UTR)
Region of messenger RNA (mRNA) that immediately follows the translation termination codon. The 3′-UTR often contains regulatory regions that influence gene expression post-transcriptionally.
The set of all RNA transcripts, including coding and non-coding, in an individual or a population of cells.
