I am studying bioinformatics for my research and I have some questions regarding RNA seq vs. Microarray for gene expression level.
When considering their pros and cons, I think that RNA-seq has more good advantages over Microarray. For example, RNA is available for all species and also can check novel transcribed regions because RNA-seq platform doesn't require pre-defined procedures for checking gene expression level.
And also RNA has good advantages which are alternative splicing and to identify fusion genes. However, I didn't get the reason why RNA-seq has such two good points (alternative splicing, fusion genes) over Microarray techniques.
Could you explain the reason for me?
