Hi there,

I am using Ensembl gtf files to carry out RNA-Seq analysis.

I am interested in the expression levels of mRNA and long-noncoding RNAs in the data and I find that the gtf files contain not only mRNA and lncRNA but also a variety of non-coding RNAs such as miRNA, snoRNA, rRNA and misc_RNA.

My concern is whether I need to remove all the genes except for mRNA and lncRNA before performing the RNA-Seq analysis (e.g., mapping, expression quantification) for the purpose of my research?

Or I could keep all the types of genes in the gtf file and after the expression quantification I will be free to choose the types of genes of interest?

Which approach do you recommend and why?

Many thanks for your help,

Best regards,

Tom

Just keep everything on board. With a bit of luck you'll find that for example a novel snoRNA or miRNA is important in your research.
