Study Description

Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) molecules have fundamental roles in cells and many are also stable in body fluids as extracellular RNAs. In these studies, we used RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) to investigate the profile of small non-coding RNA (sncRNA) in human serum. We analyzed more than 10 billion Illumina reads from more than 500 serum samples, included in the Norwegian population-based Janus Serum Bank (JSB). Our results suggest that many circulating RNAs in serum can be potential biomarkers and they are associated with different traits including age, sex, smoking, body size etc.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The Janus Serum Bank (JSB) is a population-based cancer research biobank. This dataset contains small RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data of 520 JSB samples from cancer-free individuals. Sequencing libraries were indexed and 12 samples were sequenced per lane on a HiSeq 2500 (Illumina) to an average depth of 18 million reads per sample. The dataset files are raw FASTQ files from the sequencing machine (50bp, single-end sequencing)
Illumina HiSeq 2500 520
