Next Generation Sequencing and Analysis workshop - transcriptomics for non-model species

The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment is pleased to announce a Next Generation Sequencing and Analysis workshop on the topic of transcriptomics for non-model species.

This bioinformatics course will be delivered Brian Haas (the Broad Institute, MIT, USA; of Trinity RNA-Seq fame) and will be geared towards biologists who are working on RNASeq data from species with smaller genomic communities and are interested in further understanding how to analyse these types of data.

The course will be run over the course of one week and will be focused on hands-on exercises on transcriptome assembly, structural and functional annotation and differential expression experiments.

Everyone with an interest is encouraged to apply. Attendees are expected to have a solid understanding of the BASH command line, bring their own laptops and are strongly encouraged to bring their own data so that they can use the opportunity to discuss their analyses with the lecturers and other attendees. Registration for this course is first by Expression Of Interest to ensure that we have a small group of (ca 20) enthusiastic attendees that are on a similar level and have similar expectations.
