Bulk RNA sequencing data analysis


​The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the necessary skills to understand and interpret RNA sequencing datasets. Participants will learn how to process, analyze and visualize datasets in a biological meaningful way. After this workshop, participants should be able to assess the quality of their data, analyze it and understand advantages, limitations and challenges while working on these datasets.

Topics include

  • Understanding sequencing libraries
  • Quality analysis of raw sequencing data
  • Alignment and quantification
  • Differential gene expression analysis
  • Visualization of results
  • Applications of RNA-sequencing (identifying splicing, isoforms, circRNA, SNPs)

The detailed schedule will be distributed to accepted participants prior to the start of the workshop.
