USDA scientists performed a longitudinal study of young cows to identify microRNAs linked to a serum antibody produced after exposure to a common pathogen. Their analysis detected miRNAs that may have diagnostic value, as well as ones that may help boost productivity in cattle. MiRNAs were sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq after being size-selected with Pippin Prep.
