RNA-Seq Analysis Using Galaxy
RNA-Seq Analysis Using Galaxy is a one-day, workshop that introduces the concepts of RNA-Seq analysis. This workshop provides hands-on experience with RNA-Seq data preparation, statistical testing for differential gene expression, identifying novel transcription features and generating graphical summaries of RNA-Seq data.
The workshop will focus on the use of Galaxy, a platform that provides a simple and user-friendly interface to bioinformatics tools, and will also feature an introduction to the R environment used widely by bioinformaticians.
During this course you will learn about;
- The tools and workflows of RNA-Seq analysis
- Analysis of RNA-Seq data for organisms with reference genomes
- Web-based and command-line interfaces to bioinformatics tools
RNA-Seq analysis using Galaxy is designed for bench scientists, PhD students and early career postdoctoral researchers who are planning to work with next-generation sequencing data for small variant detection. No prior bioinformatics experience is required.
This workshop is open to all Australian life scientists, however priority will be given to NSW and ACT, health and medical researchers.
