In this hands-on workshop I will show you how to perform exploratory data analysis, normalization, and differential expression of RNA-seq data using popular Bioconductor packages, such as edgeR and DESeq2. To get the best out of the workshop, please bring your laptop with the latest version of R and Bioconductor already installed. I will follow up with a list of packages that we will use during the workshop.
