The SMARTer Ultra Low RNA Kit for Illumina Sequencing has been designed and validated to prepare cDNA samples for sequencing on all of Illumina's sequencing instruments, including HiSeq™ 2000. This kit greatly reduces handling of the RNA sample, thereby minimizing the risk of sample loss and preserving the original message. The efficient incorporation of known sequences at both ends of the cDNA during first strand synthesis enables researchers to perform the entire protocol in a single tube, without a separate adaptor ligation step. Moreover, SMART's high efficiency and sensitivity permits the use of very limited quantities of starting material—as little as 100 pg of total RNA—from a variety of sources. The combination of SMART technology's ability to handle very small quantities of RNA with Illumina's unique combination of long and short reads, single and paired-end sequencing, and capacity for tens of millions to billions of reads per run allows you to annotate coding SNPs, discover transcript isoforms, characterize splice junctions, and determine the relative abundance of transcripts from even the smallest samples.
