Bioinformatics Training Course - RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) and Differential Expression

Bioinformatics Training Course - RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) and Differential Expression

This is a past event

Part of the Centre for Genome Enabled Biology and Medicine (CGEBM) bioinformatics training course series, this course will introduce you to methods for analysing RNA-sequencing data.

Bulk sequencing of RNA (RNA-seq) is commonly used to uncover gene expression patterns in a wide variety of organisms. This workshop will work through the key steps in basic analysis of RNA-seq data to give a list of differentially expressed genes using both the Galaxy graphical user interface and the command line interface to the Aberdeen HPC.

Prerequisites: This course is relatively fast-paced, so participants will need to have taken the CGEBM Introduction to Unix and HPC course or have existing experience to be able to keep up. If you are in doubt about your existing qualifications, please email Louie van de Lagemaat to discuss. The CGEBM Quality Control course is also highly recommended

This is an instructor led computer-based tutorial with support demonstrators.

Instructors: CGEBM Bioinformaticians (Dr Antonio Ribeiro, Dr Dami Oresegun, and Dr Louie van de Lagemaat)
