Default Advanced RNA-Seq Analysis Training @NIH, USA, Jan 10-13, 2017

Hands-on Training in Advanced RNA-Seq Analysis
Jan 10-13, 2017

Where?
National Institutes of Health
9000 Rockville Pike
Building 60, Room 162
Bethesda, MD 20892

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 training.
  • 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
