Bioinformatics Guest Lecture Series

RNA-seq Analysis

Dr. Sarah Kingan, an experienced bioinformaticist and evolutionary biologist, will teach participants analysis of RNA sequence data from read generation to read alignment to expression and transcript analysis. The hands-on component will walk participants through a reference-based assembly pipeline using Cufflinks as well as downstream analysis of transcript abundance and structure. The goal is to give participants a framework to design experiments, generate their own data, and do custom analyses of their data using existing software packages.  NOTE: This is an intermediate to advanced level workshop.  Students should have some experience with the UNIX command line programming.  This workshop will utilize resources of the Center for Integrated Research Computing.  Participants will be required to obtain BlueHive2 login credentials, if they do not already have them. Click here to register for the RNA-seq workshop or Cancer at the Systems Level. Please contact Helene McMurray at 275-6940 with any questions.
