An introduction to RNA-seq analysis using the Galaxy Australia web platform
About this workshop
RNA-seq is a popular method for simultaneously measuring and comparing the expression of tens of thousands of genes in multiple samples.
There are many steps involved in analysing RNA-Seq data. The analysis begins with sequencing reads (FASTQ files). These are usually aligned to a reference genome. The number of reads mapped to each gene can then be counted. This results in a table of counts, which is what we perform statistical analyses on to determine differentially expressed genes and pathways.
This practical workshop provides a hands-on introduction to RNA-seq analysis from reads to counts, to differential expression. The workshop makes use of Galaxy, an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.
The workshop materials are based on the following Galaxy training workshops:
Who the workshop is for
Researchers who have, or will soon acquire, RNA-seq short read data that they need to analyse themselves. No prior experience with RNA-seq analysis is required.
The workshop requires you to be familiar with using and navigating Galaxy Australia.
If you are new to the Galaxy platform (an online platform for computational analysis) we recommend that you work through the Galaxy 101 For Everyone tutorial in advance of the workshop.
Date/Time: 23 - 24 February 2:00 - 5:00 pm AEDT
