RR-1 and RR-3 mouse liver transcriptomics with and without ERCC control RNA spike-ins

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

Proper interpretation of RNA sequencing data requires an understanding of assay sensitivity and sources of variability. To this end the External RNA Control Consortium (ERCC) developed a standard set of 92 poly-adenylated RNA transcripts that are orthogonal to mammalian RNA that can be added to RNA extracts before library generation and sequencing. The presence of these RNA standards at known ratios improves interpretation of RNA sequencing datasets. To test the utility of the ERCC RNA controls total RNA extracted from mouse livers from the Rodent Research 1 (flight and ground groups) and Rodent Research 3 (flight and ground groups) missions was sequenced with and without the ERCC control RNA. To allow comparison within and between groups ERCC Mix 1 or Mix 2 were added to half of the samples from each group respectively.
