Fastcast Webinar: Conquer RNA-seq Analytics Challenges with Pivotal and EMC Isilon Date: September 23rd  |  Time: 1 pm ET / 10 am PT  |  Download

 

RNA-Seq promises a comprehensive picture of the transcriptome allowing for the complete annotation and quantification of all genes and their isoforms in any given sample. However, the trade-off between speed and accuracy for analyses continues to be a barrier to for RNA-seq applications. Sarah Aerni from Pivotal Data Science Labs, and E. Sasha Paegle from EMC Isilon discuss RNA-seq data management and analysis strategies for minimizing bottlenecks during alignment, splice junction detection, and gene expression quantification. Topics will include combining structured and unstructured data using th e Pivotal Unified Analytics Platform (UAP) and Isilon, approaches to eliminating the unnecessary movement of data, and example use cases.This webinar will evaluate:

  • Strategies decreasing analysis time using Pivotal and Isilon technologies
  • Approaches to combing structured and unstructured data
  • Lessons learned and best practices for RNA-seq analysis
  • The role of Pivotal Data Science Labs
