From a RNA seq experiment we look for the counts of transcripts of tRNA but we are also interested of other types of RNA we can find. Because of the protocol used for the library prep we can't analyse miRNA but we can analyse ncRNA. I never analyzed transcripts for ncRNA and I have some questions:
- The name of the transcripts are like ENST00000611544.1, ENST00000387069.1, since they are non coding, are they linked to a gene? Should I rename the name of each ncRNA with a gene name or working with these long names is ok?
- When analyzing transcripts of RNA I did enrichment analysis to see what pathways are more active. But when analyzing transcripts for ncRNA is possible to do something similar to enrichment analysis? How can analyse the functions of the ncRNA that we get from the study?
Thank you very much in advance
