GCAT and the Regulatory Genomics Group at the IGTP-IJC have developed a new method to make checking whether samples that have had RNA
RNA sequencing data sets can be used to study a huge number of human diseases
The Regulatory Genomics Group at the IGTP and the IJC has developed a new method to make checking whether samples that have had RNA sequenced are from related individuals. They have shown that it can be used on large data sets of RNA sequencing information to check if samples are from related individuals or not, or to reconstruct family trees.
After developing a method to detect related individuals from RNA Sequence information, the team tested it in large group of samples from the GCAT Project, for whom the family relationships are well documented. Experts from the GCAT Project also contributed their expertise to this work.
