Description

The workshops will focus on introducing researchers to the principles behind RNA-Seq analysis and will provide a hands-on introduction to software and analysis pipelines for RNA-Seq. Workshop is aimed at teaching the computational process that takes the raw data all the way through the high level analysis. We will focus on advanced analysis using a Linux command line environment to run open-source RNA-Seq software.

In this all day workshop with lecture and hands on exercises. The morning session has more "hand holding" and the afternoon session provides time for applying what was learned.

Materials will cover the following topics:

  • Quality Control of reads
  • Align reads
  • Quantify transcript levels
  • Differential expression
  • Manipulate SAM/BAM files

Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of the Linux environment (bash shell) and a basic understanding of statistical methods.

Prerequisite:

Must be comfortable with the Linux command line and familiar with basic Linux commands. 

If you have registered for the Linux Basic for NGS Data Analysis or DoIT's Linux in a Day free course for UW Students, you are considered to meet the prerequisite.

* There is a minimal set of software that should be installed on laptops BEFORE attending the workshop. Instructions will be provided to attendees prior to the workshop and can be found within the PDF document: GETTING PREPARED FOR CLASS
