Webinar of the Month

Discovery and characterization of miRNAs expressed in cancers

By Dr. Veena Hedatale
Senior Application Scientist - Avadis NGS, Strand Life Sciences

miRNAs constitute a family of small RNA species that function as important regulators of cellular processes by modulating gene expression. In this webinar, we will focus on miRNA analysis using next generation sequencing cancer data with insights to alignment, quality checks, filtering and analysis steps. Using the small RNA workflow in Avadis NGS, users can rapidly and easily characterize miRNA expression and function by expression profiling, identification of sequence isoforms, prediction of novel miRNAs, and prediction of potential mRNA target molecules.


  • Pleased to share the release of Avadis NGS version 1.6. Key highlights of the latest version includes longer indel detection, new workflow step for identification of somatic mutations, local realignment step optimized for speed, multiple usability enhancements on views and utilities and many more. For details refer to the release notes
