Answer: A: Differential expression for two very different samples
... Since the main problem here would be drawing a line through the middle of the genes to normalize the two sets, if you are creating your own data you may want to spike in ERCCs. These are RNA sequences that you would put into each sample in the same quantity to assist with normalization later. In tr ...

Answer: A: IP efficiency in Chip-Seq data
... By "fix" do you mean making the less efficient experiment more efficient? The less efficient experiment will have a higher signal to noise ratio, meaning that there will be more background noise. You cannot increase the signal to noise ratio above what is there because you cannot efficiently remove ...

Answer: A: Small RNA-seq experimental design, which one is better?
... So with 40 samples you may be able to bring down library prep costs with a high throughput protocol. Usually this means you barcode your individual samples with some sort of in line barcode early on and then you just do one library prep and sequence it. We did this with the RNA Tag Seq protocol for ...
