Arrow RNA-Seq and Variant Analysis Workshop (Aug 29 - Sep 2)

You won’t want to miss our 9th annual Summer Bioinformatics Workshop!

Aug 29 - Sept. 2, 2016
Using Galaxy for Analysis of RNA-Seq, Exome Seq, and Variants

Following up on our very successful June workshop, we will be teaching another week-long workshop at the end of August. It will include a rich collection of lectures and hands-on sessions, covering both theory and tools. We will explore the basics of high throughput sequencing technologies, focusing on Illumina data for hands-on exercises.

The workshop will be held on the UC Davis campus and will run from 9am to 5pm each day. Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data, utilizing computing power of the Amazon Cloud (

Workshop exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using the popular Galaxy platform ( which allows for powerful web-based data analyses.

Topics will include:
Sequencing technologies, including Illumina platform
Hardware and software considerations
Cloud Computing
Read Quality Assessment & Improvement
Experimental design and cost estimation
RNA-Seq differential expression analysis
Exome Sequencing
Variant Analysis

See documentation from June 2016 and other past workshops at Also please consult our FAQ at (

Who Should Attend
Prior workshop participants have included faculty, post docs, grad students, staff, and industry researchers. There are no prerequisites other than basic familiarity with genomic concepts. Anyone with an interest in sequence analysis is welcome!

Registration Info
For more information, and to register, click on the link above or go to Attendance is limited to 36 participants n order to foster an effective learning environment and ensure sufficient one-on-one attention. All registration is “first-come, first-served”. There is no application process.
The registration fee is $1,400 for UC and UC affiliates, $1,600 for other academic or non-profit participants and $2,000 for other participants. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment. Registration fees include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks, but do not include dinner, lodging or parking fees.
Amazon has kindly provided grants of $100 per participant for Amazon Web Services accounts. This will allow you to perform analysis during and after the course using Amazon’s resources, without purchasing your own high performance computing servers!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

We hope to see you this summer!
