I'm looking for early references to the term RNA-Seq (or mRNA-Seq).

Are there any before these that appeared in 2008?

  1. Highly Integrated Single-Base Resolution Maps of the Epigenome in Arabidopsis
  2. Mapping and quantifying mammalian transcriptomes by RNA-Seq
  3. The Transcriptional Landscape of the Yeast Genome Defined by RNA Sequencing

Quoting from #3: "We have developed a novel sequencing-based method called RNA-Seq in which cDNA fragments are subjected to high throughput sequencing using the Illumina platform, and short reads are computationally mapped to the genome to identify the transcribed regions."

and

"Here we describe a novel high throughput sequencing-based approach for global transcriptome mapping called RNA Sequencing (RNA-Seq)" (with RNA and S of Sequencing underlined.)

Based on this, I'm inclined to say the authors of #3 coined the term.

interesting historical perspective,

#1 seems to call it mRNA-seq

 #3 seems to have appeared before #2  (I can't log in from home to check which one was submitted sooner).

 #3 suggests that they have invented the name

Thanks! I'm preparing some slides for a talk and would like to get the chronology right. I can't find anything earlier than 2008. Amazing to think it's only been 6 years!

indeed, makes you think that perhaps 6 years from now RNA-Seq might mean something completely different

I have a vague recollection that the term "mRNA-Seq" was coined by Illumina. For the record, at Solexa/Illumina the "ancestor" of RNA-Seq was called Digitial Gene Expression (2007 or a little earlier) and it was a sort of EST sequencing.

here is a very nice post resolving also recieved / accepted dates.. and adding two more papers to the list (which fall between Lister et al. and Nagalakshmi et al. )

I have moved this comment to an answer, because it is one imo, also contains evidence

Actually, there was a paper in 2006 by Bainbridge et al. where the authors performed RNA-seq though it wasn't called that way yet. They performed 454 sequencing, obtained thousands of sequences, used BLAST to map them to human transcriptome and determined gene expressions.

It sounds like RNA-seq to me.

Yes. The method is RNAseq basically. So, this is the first RNASEQ paper ever made?

Yes, it is the first RNA-Seq paper. Here is a nice review on RNA-Seq by Andreas Weber for reference.

I agree with your conclusions, #3 looks like it's the first one. BTW 5 papers were published in 2008 http://blog.sbgenomics.com/rna-seq-the-first-wave/

I thought it was Prof. Marcel Dinger's article.
