We describe a novel sequencing approach that combines non-gel-based signature sequencing with in vitro cloning of millions of templates on separate 5 μm diameter microbeads. After constructing a microbead library of DNA templates by in vitro cloning, we assembled a planar array of a million template-containing microbeads in a flow cell at a density greater than 3 × 106 microbeads/cm2. Sequences of the free ends of the cloned templates on each microbead were then simultaneously analyzed using a… 
Gene expression analysis by signature pyrosequencing.
A novel method for transcript profiling based on high-throughput parallel sequencing of signature tags using a non-gel-based microtiter plate format that resulted in identification of genes with possible relevance for development of atherosclerosis is described.
Deep SequencingMaps theMaize Epigenomic Landscape
The age of omics is in full swing. Full genome sequences and the use of DNA microarrays to monitor gene expression on a genome-wide scale arrived on the scene a little over a dozen years ago, and
Expression profiling using a hexamer-based universal microarray
We describe a transcriptional analysis platform consisting of a universal micro-array system (UMAS) combined with an enzymatic manipulation step that is capable of generating expression profiles from
Combining next-generation pyrosequencing with microarray for large scale expression analysis in non-model species
An innovative approach based on 454 sequencing of 3' cDNA fragments from a normalized library constructed from pooled RNAs to generate a large catalog of unique transcripts in organisms for which a comprehensive collection of transcripts or the complete genome sequence is not available, which can be used for large scale analysis of gene expression in any species.
Methods for analysis of gene expression in plants using MPSS.
This work describes how the users can analyze and interpret the authors' MPSS expression data and focuses on a subset of these tools (e.g., Gene Analysis [GA], Chromosome Viewer [CV], and Library Analysis [LIBAN]).
Analysis of the prostate cancer cell line LNCaP transcriptome using a sequencing-by-synthesis approach
The use of high-throughput sequencing-by-synthesis methods for transcript profiling allows the specific and sensitive detection of many of a cell's transcripts, and also allows the discovery of high quality base discrepancies, and alternative splice variants.
Generation of longer 3' cDNA fragments from massively parallel signature sequencing tags.
The GLGI protocol is adapted to convert MPSS tags into their corresponding 3' cDNA fragments, which allowed the identification of novel transcripts, alternative tags generated from polymorphic and alternatively spliced transcripts, as well as the detection of artefactual MpsS tags.
Quantification of the yeast transcriptome by single-molecule sequencing
We present single-molecule sequencing digital gene expression (smsDGE), a high-throughput, amplification-free method for accurate quantification of the full range of cellular polyadenylated RNA
Digital analysis of cDNA abundance; expression profiling by means of restriction fragment fingerprinting
The DADA method proved to be capable of identifying pharmacologically relevant target genes that had not been identified by other standard methods routinely used to find differentially expressed genes.
Next-generation DNA sequencing of paired-end tags (PET) for transcriptome and genome analyses.
Paired-end tag (PET) sequencing for various applications, collectively called the PET sequencing strategy, in which short and paired tags are extracted from the ends of long DNA fragments for ultra-high-throughput sequencing, has a bright future ahead.


In vitro cloning of complex mixtures of DNA on microbeads: physical separation of differentially expressed cDNAs.
A method for cloning nucleic acid molecules onto the surfaces of 5-micrometer microbeads rather than in biological hosts, which permits the isolation of clones that are expressed only in given tissues or that are differentially expressed between normal and diseased states.
Genome-wide expression profiling in Escherichia coli K-12.
Analysis of spot intensities from hybridization to replicate arrays identified sets of genes with signals consistently above background suggesting that at least 25% of genes were expressed at detectable levels during growth in rich media.
Large scale cDNA sequencing for analysis of quantitative and qualitative aspects of gene expression
The large–scale sequencing of a 3′–directed cDNA library from the human liver cell line HepG2, that is a non–biased representation of the mRNA population, is initiated, providing a complementary approach to structural analysis of the human genome by generating expressed sequence tags (ESTs).
Visualization of differential gene expression using a novel method of RNA fingerprinting based on AFLP: analysis of gene expression during potato tuber development.
The results indicate that cDNA-AFLP is a broadly applicable technology for identifying developmentally regulated genes and rapid and simple verification of band identity may be achieved.
Molecular phenotype of the human oocyte by PCR-SAGE.
The relative abundances of transcripts for cytoskeletal proteins and proteins known to be in oocytes are consistent with their documented expression, suggesting an absence of representational distortion by the PCR step, and may help identify factors that reprogram somatic cell nuclei to totipotency.
Characterization of the Yeast Transcriptome
The integration of positional information with gene expression data allowed for the generation of chromosomal expression maps identifying physical regions of transcriptional activity and identified genes that had not been predicted by sequence information alone.
