Identifying the transcription start sites (TSS) of genes is essential for characterizing promoter regions. Several protocols have been developed to capture the 5′ end of transcripts via Cap-Analysis of Gene Expression (CAGE) or linker-ligation strategies such as Paired-End Analysis of Transcription Start Sites (PEAT), but often require large amounts of tissue. More recently, nanoCAGE was developed for sequencing on the Illumina GAIIx to overcome this limitation. In this chapter, we present the nanoCAGE-XL protocol, the first publicly available adaptation of nanoCAGE for sequencing on recent ultra-high-throughput platforms such as Illumina HiSeq-2000. NanoCAGE-XL provides a method for precise transcription start site identification in large eukaryotic genomes, even in cases where input total RNA quantity is very limited.
