We have an RNA-seq course running this autumn at Edinburgh Genomics that may be of interest to any RNA-seq newbies out there! Check out the link for more details.
Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis 18-20 November 2019
RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies.
The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs will be used.
Tutors: Urmi Trivedi, Bioinformatician, Edinburgh Genomics; Frances Turner, Bioinformatician, Edinburgh Genomics; Nathan Medd, Training and Outreach Manager, Edinburgh Genomics (demonstrator)
