Bioinformatics Core Virtual 4-Day Workshop: RNA-Seq Demystified (Part 3)

April 26, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This 4-day virtual workshop series is targeted toward researchers who would like to be able to run RNA-Seq analysis on their own.

About this Event

4-Day Workshop Schedule:

  • 4/19-4/20, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM: Intro to BASH/R (prerequisite)
  • 4/26-4/27, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM: Hands-On RNA-Seq Analysis

About the Workshop:

This series of virtual, hands-on workshops builds on the 3/29 “A Gentle Introduction to Bulk RNA-Seq” webinar. It is targeted toward researchers who would like to be able to run RNA-Seq analysis on their own; it assumes only a basic familiarity with genetics. We will begin with a two-day introduction to the fundamentals of using BASH and R (hosted by Dr. Evan Snitkin of UM Microbiology and Immunology/CCMB). The series concludes with two half-day sessions that introduce the basic steps in analyzing differential gene expression in bulk RNA-Seq data.

By the end of the series, 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 sample data. Attendees will use their own workstation/laptop to run the tools; we will provide setup instructions and assistance in advance of the workshop. The workshop will be conducted over Zoom; Zoom recordings and digital course content will be made available to attendees. (Attendees must have reliable access to the internet.)
