This 2.5 day bioinformatics course is presented by the Centre for Genomic Research and the Computational Biology Facility at the University of Liverpool. It primarily focuses on practical computer sessions designed to provide delegates with hands-on experience of the informatics involved in analysing RNAseq datasets to detect and measure differential gene expression and the use of multi-omic integration to predict key driver genes and genesets.
- The follow topics will be covered in the workshop:
- Sequencing quality control (fastQC & sickle)
- Linux refresher
- RNAseq alignment to genomic reference (tophat2, samtools)
- Basic R introduction
- Differential gene expression analysis (R, edgeR)
- Multi-omics integration
