Most small RNAs exert their function inside the cell. However, they can also be detected in the cell-free fraction of body fluids, such as in serum and plasma. There is a growing interest in these molecules in relation to their potential as biomarkers and mediators of cell-cell communication. Watch this on-demand webinar to see a review of small RNA-seq approaches to characterization of cell-free samples and discuss some of the new areas where they are used.
