Pharmacogenomics has revealed compelling genetic signals associated with variability in drug response. Gene expression studies represent an additional approach to identify candidate genes accounting for drug response variability. This review focuses on insights that might be gained through analysis of the transcriptome to reveal the influence of gene expression on variable drug response. We provide a basic overview of RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) and its applications, and outline advances in pharmacogenomics achievable with RNA-Seq data. This article is protected by copyright.
