Hands-on Training in Advanced RNA-Seq Analysis

October 31-November 3, 2017

National Institutes of Health

9000 Rockville Pike

Building 60, Room 162

Bethesda, MD 20892, USA


Objectives

Participants will start with learning to use two different suite of programs (Tuxedo Vs Trinity) and compare their results for differential expression analysis. Participants will then 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 regulatorynetwork analysis.

Hands-on Skills/Tools Taught

  • Differential expression analysis : Tuxedo tools
  • Differential expression analysis : Trinity tools
  • Fusion gene analysis : Tophat-Fusion
  • SNP detection : GATK
  • Allele specific expression : WASP
  • Circular RNA identification : circexplorer
  • Alternative polyadenylation : DaPars
  • Viral integration : VirusFinder
  • Network analysis : Cytoscape

Highlights

  • Participants will work with a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment in the Amazon Cloud, that is specially configured to run popular open source RNA-Seq analysis tools.
  • Participants will be provided with free access to the fully configured Amazon Machine Image for their personal use after the
  • Participants will also receive a cookbook style manual for all the handson exercises.
  • After training support is also provided through exclusive members only forum.
  • Hands-on training provided by NIH researchers active in the field of RNA-Seq analysis
