RNA-Seq Bioinformatics Workshop – The Use of Short Read Illumina Data for Transcriptome Annotation and Quantification

RNA-Seq – The Use of Short Read Illumina Data for Transcriptome Annotation and Quantification.

Monday, January 2, 2012 at 09:30-12:00.

Location: Harry Levine Family Building, Computer Classroom, Weizmann Institute, Rehovot.

Lecturer:  Dr. Dena Leshkowitz Bioinformatics Unit,

Sponsor: Life Sciences Bioinformatics & Biological Computing Unit.

Topics: This workshop will start with an hour lecture on the various computational approaches and tools to analyze the data, including:

  • Read mapping
  • Transcriptome reconstruction
  • Expression quantification
  • Detecting differential genes and transcripts

A hands-on session will follow the lecture. In this session we will practice RNA-Seq workflows provided in Galaxy (Tophat, cufflinks and cuffdiff) and the Partek Genomics Suite software.
