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.
