Apart from performing the routine differential expression analysis using two different suite of tools, this hands-on training will help participants learn advanced RNA-Seq analysis techniques and tools for detecting snps, fusion genes, allele specific expressions, circular RNAs, viral/bacterial sequence identification, alternative polyadenylation and transcriptional regulatory network analysis.
- Participants will use a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment, specially configured for advanced RNA-Seq analysis in the Amazon Cloud
- Training provided by experienced active NIH researchers
- Cookbook style bound manual for all exercises
- Direct, after training support through exclusive forum membership
- Continuing Education Credits
Who should attend:
- Researchers and academics who are interested in exploring the RNA-Seq data for more than what is routinely done.
- Clinicians who are interested in discovering novel biological regulatory mechanisms looking for potential diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic uses.
- Biomedical students who are interested in pursuing research on advanced transcriptomics and transcriptional regulatory mechanisms.
- Scientists in program administration interested in learning and understanding the latest methods and concepts in transcriptome analysis
Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills
