Bioinformatics Core Virtual 3-Day Workshop: RNA-Seq Demystified

November 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am - November 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

This is a 3 x ½ day virtual, hands-on workshop targeted toward researchers who would like to be able to run RNA-Seq analysis on their own.

Workshop Schedule:

11/15-11/17, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM ET: Hands-On RNA-Seq Analysis

About the Workshop:

This virtual, hands-on workshop is targeted toward researchers who would like to be able to understand the analysis of differential gene expression in bulk RNA-Seq data; it assumes a basic familiarity with genetics as well as familiarity with the basics of using BASH and R. (FYI, UM Carpentries is sponsoring a free online 2-day intro Bash/R workshop 10/18-19, 9:00 am-4:00 pm ET that would satisfy this prerequisite. See registration details here.)

By the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Use the command line and R to navigate, analyze, and visualize data files.
  • Transform raw sequencing data into annotated differential expression values using a suite of open-source tools.
  • Visualize and interpret common data quality problems and understand their impact and possible mitigations.

We will provide a server environment and a login, sample data, and required software. Attendees will use their own workstation/laptop to participate in the workshop and access the server environment; the workstation/laptop should have a microphone, camera, and reliable internet access. We will provide detailed setup instructions and assistance in advance of the workshop.

The workshop will be conducted over Zoom. The workshop experience is designed to be interactive and includes live-coding and opportunities for questions throughout. Although the workshop will be recorded, the recordings will only be made available to those who attend the workshop.

For more questions, please email us at bioinformatics-workshops@umich.edu or see the Bioinformatics Core website.
