Transcriptomics: A time-efficient tool with wide applications in crop and animal biotechnology
Author(s): Arif Ahmad Pandit, Riaz Ahmad Shah and Amjad M Husaini
Abstract: Transcriptomics is the study of RNA profile inside the cells at a given time point. Besides coding RNA, cells have the important regulatory non-coding RNA sequences also. It is not as simple as thought to study the transcriptome of a cell owing to its complexity. But, the recent advances in transcriptomic technologies have made it possible to characterize the transcriptome of a living cell and unravel molecular basis to help in the strategic improvement of both crop and animal production. Transcriptomics in recent years has extended to the vast range of agriculture and animal systems being studied thereby bridging the gap between the two sectors. There is always a scope to introduce newer methods to cover up the shortcoming of earlier technologies and allow for more detailed information of basic research questions.
