RNA-Seq Workshop

Wednesday, May 21 at 9:30am to 5:30pm

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Yawkey Center for Cancer Care, Room 306

RNA-Seq is emerging as a new technology to study transcriptome changes through massive parallel sequencing. Understanding data generated from RNA-Seq experiments presents a novel analytical challenge. This 1-day RNA-Seq focus workshop will introduce how to run successful RNA-Seq experiments and analyses.

The primary goal of the workshop is to enable participants with no prior knowledge of RNA-Seq to carry out analysis on their own. Through lectures and tutorials we will introduce the concepts of RNA-Seq from experimental design, library construction, quality control, read alignment, expression quantification, to differential expression analysis. Participants will get hands-on experience analyzing real data. Basic knowledge of molecular biology is assumed, but participants need not have prior programming experience to attend. All required skills, from navigating a Linux terminal to visualizing mapped reads and heatmaps will be demonstrated.
