Small-RNA sequencing service

Our small RNA discovery and analysis service allows the discovery of rare small RNA without previous sequence or secondary structure information in any organism. BaseClear applies the latest randomized adapter protocols by Bioo Scientific that were developed to drastically reduce the bias in small RNA analysis compared to the standard protocols. With this service we can find novel small RNA and analyse the differential expression of all small RNAs in your sample simultaneously.


  • Removal of small-RNA adapter sequences
  • Alignment of and annotation of small RNA sequences based on species-specific datasets (among which miRBase, Ensemble)
  • Counting and clustering of annotated small RNA sequences
  • The bioinformatics strategy will be determined in close collaboration between the customer and our bioinformatics specialist
