Transcriptomics is the study of cellular gene expression, and it is often used to detect activity changes prompted by environmental stimuli. The benefit of doing sequencing based transcriptomics is the unbiased detection of novel transcripts, high specificity and easily scalable sensitivity and high throughput. Transcriptomics is usually performed on pure or simple cultures as good reference genomes are needed, but can in theory be done on complex samples as well. At DNASense we have a lot of experience with transcriptomics of pure cultures from both environmental and clinical contexts as well as studies of more complex communities from enrichment bioreactors.
