Sites of transcription of polyadenylated and nonpolyadenylated RNAs for 10 human chromosomes were mapped at 5–base pair resolution in eight cell lines. Unannotated, nonpolyadenylated transcripts comprise the major proportion of the transcriptional output of the human genome. Of all transcribed sequences, 19.4, 43.7, and 36.9% were observed to be polyadenylated, nonpolyadenylated, and bimorphic, respectively. Half of all transcribed sequences are found only in the nucleus and for the most part…

TLDR
By quantifying RNA expression on both strands of the complete genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using a high-density oligonucleotide tiling array, this study identifies the boundary, structure, and level of coding and noncoding transcripts.
Organization and transcriptional output of a novel mRNA-like piRNA gene (mpiR) located on mouse chromosome 10.
TLDR
Overall, this work provides a picture of a novel, lineage-specific, noncoding RNA gene and describes its processing into both mRNA-like and piRNA products.
The Biology of Long Non-Coding RNA
TLDR
The biology, conservation, function and roles in disease as well as various approaches to their characterisation of long non-coding RNAs are examined.
RNA Maps Reveal New RNA Classes and a Possible Function for Pervasive Transcription
TLDR
Three potentially functional classes of RNAs have been identified, two of which are syntenically conserved and correlate with the expression state of protein-coding genes and support a highly interleaved organization of the human transcriptome.
Transcriptional and post-transcriptional profile of human chromosome 21.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the combination of RNA fractionation and tiling arrays is a powerful method to assess the transcriptional and post-transcriptional properties of genomic regions.
Transcriptional landscape of the human and fly genomes: nonlinear and multifunctional modular model of transcriptomes.
TLDR
An interlaced model of the genome in which many regions serve multifunctional purposes and are highly modular in their utilization is illustrated, illustrating the underappreciated organizational complexity ofThe genome and one of the functional roles of transcription from unannotated portions of the genomes.
The Transcriptional Landscape of the Mammalian Genome
TLDR
Detailed polling of transcription start and termination sites and analysis of previously unidentified full-length complementary DNAs derived from the mouse genome provide a comprehensive platform for the comparative analysis of mammalian transcriptional regulation in differentiation and development.
Biological function of unannotated transcription during the early development of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Identification of P element mutations within or near newly identified 5′ exons provides a strategy for mapping previously uncharacterized mutations to their respective genes and indicates that at least 85% of the fly genome is transcribed and processed into mature transcripts representing at least 30% ofThe fly genome.
chromatin architecture related to 3 ' end RNA polyadenylation A Genomics Analysis of RNA polymerase II modification and
Genomic analyses have been applied extensively to analyze the process of transcription initiation in mammalian cells, but much less to the events associated with transcript 3’ end formation and
Regulation of gene expression by non-protein-coding RNAs
TLDR
It is found that there are widespread occurrences of NATs in mammalian genomes and that many of these regulatory elements are indeed functionally relevant in controlling conventional (sense) gene expression.

Unbiased Mapping of Transcription Factor Binding Sites along Human Chromosomes 21 and 22 Points to Widespread Regulation of Noncoding RNAs
TLDR
The human genome contains roughly comparable numbers of protein-coding and noncoding genes that are bound by common transcription factors and regulated by common environmental signals.
Large-Scale Transcriptional Activity in Chromosomes 21 and 22
TLDR
Empirically derived maps identifying active areas of RNA transcription on these chromosomes have been constructed with the use of cytosolic polyadenylated RNA obtained from 11 human cell lines with results that indicate there are approximately 770 well-characterized and predicted genes.
Novel RNAs identified from an in-depth analysis of the transcriptome of human chromosomes 21 and 22.
TLDR
The argument for a re-evaluation of the total number of human genes and an alternative term for "gene" to encompass these growing, novel classes of RNA transcripts in the human genome is strongly supported.
Global Identification of Human Transcribed Sequences with Genome Tiling Arrays
TLDR
This work constructed a series of high-density oligonucleotide tiling arrays representing sense and antisense strands of the entire nonrepetitive sequence of the human genome and found 10,595 transcribed sequences not detected by other methods.
The transcriptional activity of human Chromosome 22.
TLDR
A DNA microarray representing nearly all of the unique sequences of human Chromosome 22 was constructed and used to measure global-transcriptional activity in placental poly(A)(+) RNA and revealed twice as many transcribed bases as have been reported previously.
Analysis of the mouse transcriptome based on functional annotation of 60,770 full-length cDNAs
TLDR
The present work, completely supported by physical clones, provides the most comprehensive survey of a mammalian transcriptome so far, and is a valuable resource for functional genomics.
A Gene Expression Map for the Euchromatic Genome of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
A maskless photolithography method is used to produce DNA oligonucleotide microarrays with unique probe sequences tiled throughout the genome of Drosophila melanogaster and across predicted splice junctions to provide a draft expression map for the entire nonrepetitive genome, which reveals a much more extensive and diverse set of expressed sequences than was previously predicted.
Widespread occurrence of antisense transcription in the human genome
TLDR
The extent of antisense transcription in the human genome is studied by analyzing the public databases of expressed sequences using a set of computational tools designed to identify sense-antisense transcriptional units on opposite DNA strands of the same genomic locus to indicate that antisense modulation of gene expression in human cells may be a common regulatory mechanism.
The Sequence of the Human Genome
TLDR
Comparative genomic analysis indicates vertebrate expansions of genes associated with neuronal function, with tissue-specific developmental regulation, and with the hemostasis and immune systems are indicated.
Experimental annotation of the human genome using microarray technology
TLDR
Using ‘exon’ and ‘tiling’ arrays fabricated by ink-jet oligonucleotide synthesis, an experimental approach is devised to validate and refine computational gene predictions and define full-length transcripts on the basis of co-regulated expression of their exons.
