Recent data from several organisms indicate that the transcribed portions of genomes are larger and more complex than expected, and that many functional properties of transcripts are based not on coding sequences but on regulatory sequences in untranslated regions or non-coding RNAs. Alternative start and polyadenylation sites and regulation of intron splicing add additional dimensions to the rich transcriptional output. This transcriptional complexity has been sampled mainly using… Expand
Stepwise chromatin remodelling by a cascade of transcription initiation of non-coding RNAs
TLDR
It is shown that RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) transcription of ncRNAs is required for chromatin remodelling at the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe fbp1+ locus during transcriptional activation and that transcription through the promoter region is required to make DNA sequences accessible to transcriptional activators and to RNAPII.

Deep RNA sequencing at single base-pair resolution reveals high complexity of the rice transcriptome.
TLDR
The first transcriptome atlas for eight organs of cultivated rice is presented, providing extensive evidence that transcriptional regulation in rice is vastly more complex than previously believed. Expand
Function annotation of the rice transcriptome at single-nucleotide resolution by RNA-seq.
TLDR
This study applied RNA-seq to globally sample transcripts of the cultivated rice Oryza sativa indica and japonica subspecies for resolving the whole-genome transcription profiles and found that approximately 48% of rice genes show alternative splicing patterns, considerably higher than previous estimations. Expand
Bidirectional promoters generate pervasive transcription in yeast
TLDR
It is shown that both SUTs and CUTs display distinct patterns of distribution at specific locations, changing the view of how a genome is transcribed and indicating that bidirectionality is an inherent feature of promoters. Expand
Structure and Complexity of a Bacterial Transcriptome
TLDR
The use of a high-throughput sequencing-based approach is reported in assembling the first comprehensive, single-nucleotide resolution view of a bacterial transcriptome, offering an unprecedented view of gene expression and regulation in a bacterial cell. Expand

This study provides a path to high-throughput and low-cost direct RNA sequencing and achieving the ultimate goal of a comprehensive and bias-free understanding of transcriptomes. Expand
Transcriptome Analysis of Pseudomonas syringae Identifies New Genes, Noncoding RNAs, and Antisense Activity
TLDR
A strand-specific method was applied to sequence bacterial transcripts using Illumina's high-throughput sequencing technology and identified and confirmed transcriptional activity in areas of the genome inconsistent with the annotation and in unannotated regions, suggesting a role for RpoN-dependent promoter sequences upstream of several noncoding RNAs. Expand
A simple method for directional transcriptome sequencing using Illumina technology
TLDR
An equivalent technique optimized for studying complete prokaryotic transcriptomes that minimizes the manipulation of the RNA sample is devised, indicting that ss-cDNA sequencing is both robust and appropriate for use in quantitative studies of transcription. Expand
Novel Low Abundance and Transient RNAs in Yeast Revealed by Tiling Microarrays and Ultra High–Throughput Sequencing Are Not Conserved Across Closely Related Yeast Species
TLDR
To interrogate the transcriptome of S. cerevisiae for low abundance or rapidly turned over transcripts, elements of the RNA degradation machinery were deleted with the goal of preferentially increasing the relative abundance of such transcripts. Expand
Transcriptomics: Digging deep with RNA-Seq
TLDR
Two new studies have surveyed the transcriptomes of model yeast species and identify large numbers of previously unknown transcripts, provide new information about the positions of promoters, exons and 3′ ends, and highlight the enormous level of transcript diversity that can be generated by alternative splicing in mammals.
