Scientists present a method for removing highly abundant rRNAs for improved analysis of small RNAs in RNA interference studies. Results showed increased resolution of sRNAs, even those seen at low frequency. For this work, the team cited BluePippin as a commonly used size selection tool for preparing sRNA-seq libraries.
