In recent years, RNA sequencing has become an important part of gene expression analysis. RNA sequencing applications are used to study many aspects of RNA structure, expression, and translation. With developing technologies, RNA sequencing is used to learn more about the biology of RNA, helping to understand more about what RNA does under different conditions, such as when the RNA’s host is under attack from a virus. New RNA sequencing technologies allow researchers to learn more about what happens to the host when there is an attack from an outside source, such as a virus. RNA sequencing also tells the researcher how the attacker successfully attacks the host and how the host responds. In this study, RNA sequencing is used to understand how a bacterial virus attacks its bacterial host.
