N2 Heatshock 32C-6hr 1 day post-L4 sncRNA

N2 heatshock 32C-6hr 1 day post-L4 small ncRNA RNA-Seq (Waterston project, Slack subgroup)


small RNAs (less than 200nt) were isolated from stress tested stress Heatshock N2 animals, and sequenced using Illumina technology. Sequences were aligned to the WS190 genome using SOAP, converted to SAM, then lifted to WS220. Tracks show alignments/read density.
Total read count: 17209140
Mapped read count: 9058363

General Description

We report a significant number of miRNAs and other non-coding small RNAs show dramatic changes in expression under various stress conditions in C. elegans. RNAs were prepared C. elegans hermaphrodites, under starvation, bacterial exposure, and heat shock stresses, and used for making cDNA libraries for small RNAs. Each library was sequenced using recent advances in high-throughput sequencing technology, Solexa.
