Scientists from Hungary and California conducted isoform sequencing with PacBio to analyze the transcriptome of herpes simplex virus type 1. They discovered dozens of previously unidentified protein-coding genes and non-coding RNAs and found that transcription may facilitate crosstalk between distant genes. They used both BluePippin and SageELF to remove shorter fragments and focus libraries on the longest molecules.
