Default Course: Analysis of RNA sequencing data with R/Bioconductor

Course: Analysis of RNA sequencing data with R/Bioconductor

Where: Freie Universitat Berlin (Germany)

When: 22-26 June 2020

This course will provide biologists and bioinformaticians with practical statistical analysis skills to perform rigorous analysis of RNAseq data with R and Bioconductor. The course assumes basic familiarity with genomics, but does not assume prior statistical training. It covers the statistical concepts necessary to design experiments and analyze high-throughput data generated by next-generation sequencing, including: exploratory data analysis, principal components analysis, clustering, differential expression, and gene set analysis.
