Workshop on RNA-Seq data analysis

From Raw Sequence Data To mining Functional Information From Gene Lists Using Galaxy And R

The workshop is currently full. However, if there is enough demand we will offer it again. So if you are interested in attending, please fill in the information here. Also, people on the waiting list will receive the first opportunity to sign up for the next workshop!

Dates: June 3rd, 4th, 6th & 7th, 2013

Time: 1 pm – 5 pm

Location: 607 IGB – University of Illinois High-Performance Biological Computing

Workshop description: This is a 4-day workshop for RNA-Seq data analysis using the Galaxy interface and R. It will cover experimental design, evaluation of sequencing data, genome alignment, gene count extraction, statistical analysis to find differential expression and data mining. Data mining will include annotation of gene lists, Venn diagrams, heatmaps. The workshop will use the local Galaxy instance and open-source R and Bioconductor packages (no prior experience with Galaxy or R is necessary).

The R portion of this workshop will be very similar to the previous R workshop “Gene Expression Analysis” from March 2013. The Galaxy portion of this workshop will be similar but not identical to the workshops from fall 2012. Both portions will be more focused on RNA-Seq than previous instances.

Cost: $35 (non-refundable). Includes paper and digital copies of all lectures and detailed R codes for analysis.

If you are making this $35 payment with a credit card (P-card or personal) payment, call Rhonda Lipking at (217) 333-1695. Personal checks are also accepted, you can drop them off with Rhonda (room 2613, IGB – warning, that the doors to the IGB Gatehouse lock promptly at 5 pm). Email Rhonda lipking@illinois.edu if you are using a C-FOP account number. Please note that C-FOPs for only start-up funds, state funded accounts, ledger 3 accounts can be accepted. C-FOPs for grants accounts (those that start with 1-4 or 1-5) cannot be used, although we will provide receipts that you can use to ask for reimbursement from such grants through your own business office.

Registration: This workshop is open to everyone, but space is limited to 40 participants and typically fills up fast. Payments must be received by May 17th at 5pm to hold registration or the spot will be opened up to the waiting list.
