Tissue: Weight(dry): ≥1 g
*For tissue smaller than 5 mg, we recommend to send flash frozen(in liquid nitrogen) tissue sample.
Cell suspension: Cell count = 3×106 - 1×107
*We recommend to ship frozen cell lysate. In case that cell counts smaller than 5×105, flash frozen in liquid nitrogen is recommended, which is preferable for micro extraction.
Blood samples: Volume≥1 ml
Recommended Sample Delivery

Shipment: 1. Dry-ice: Samples need to be packed in bags and buried in dry-ice.
1.Differential expression analysis -Volcano plot
Differential expression analysis can be processed in both gene level to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and in isoform level to identify differentially
expressed transcripts (DETs)
2.Hierarchical clustering heatmap
3.Alternative splicing identification and classification
Five types of alternative splicing events can be predicted by Astalavista.

1.Isoform-level Alternative Splicing Identification
Long-read sequences empowers identification of mutant SF3B1K700E -altered splice sites at isoform-level. 35 alternative 3′SSs and 10 alternative 5′SSs were found to be significantly differentially spliced between SF3B1K700E and SF3B1WT. 33 of the 35 alterations were newly discovered by long-read sequences.
2.Isoform-level Alternative Splicing quantification
Expression of intron retention(IR) isoforms in SF3B1K700E and SF3B1WT were quantified based on nanopore sequences, revealing a global down-regulation of IR isoforms in SF3B1K700E .
