Next-generation sequencers (NGS) have made it possible to analyze entire genome sequence. NGS can be used for the identification of genes associated with a wide variety of diseases. We investigate RNAs encoded by intergenic regions to identify novel genes that are involved in respiratory diseases. The respiratory tracts of mice were exposed to lipopolysaccharide to establish a model of respiratory disease. RNA expression levels in the mouse exosome were analyzed by NGS to identify genes involved in the development of respiratory diseases. Several disease-related regions exhibited altered expression levels of intergenic RNAs.
