This hands-on workshop introduces the concepts of RNA-Seq analysis from data preparation through to statistical testing for differential gene expression (DGE). Using Galaxy, a platform that provides a user-friendly interface to bioinformatics tools, Mark Crowe from QFAB will introduce the tools, data types and workflow of DGE analysis.
An optional afternoon session will cover more advanced topics, including identification of novel transcript isoforms, generation of graphical output from RNA-Seq data, and analysis of data from non-model organisms, along with practice exercises.
This workshop is recommended for biologists and bioinformaticians planning to work with RNA-Seq data for differential gene expression. Participants must bring their own laptops with wireless network capability.
