RNA-Seq: what is state of the art?

This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to designing and analysing RNA-Seq experiments. The workshop will cover key aspects of RNA-Seq experimental design, differential gene expression analysis, analysis of RNA-Seq time-series data, and leveraging RNA-seq for genome annotation. You will learn a variety of possible workflows for analysing RNA-Seq data, plus solutions to some frequently encountered problems when using RNA-Seq technology:

  • How many biological replicates, and what level of sequencing depth, do I need
  • for meaningful (i.e. statistically powerful) results?
  • What is the difference between available analysis tools, and what will my results look like in each case?
  • What graphics are available to best illustrate my results?
  • What to do when it all just doesn't work?

    And, ultimately:
  • I have my differentially expressed genes - WHAT'S NEXT?

Workflows for ChIP-Seq projects

The Otago Genomics & Bioinformatics Facility invites you to this free workshop which serves as an introduction to transcriptional regulation studies using sequencing data (hands-on). In the workshop, we will cover:

  • Correct project design
  • Data QC and clean-up
  • Peak calling and annotation
  • Different types of workflows for different cases
  • Explore relevant databases and datasets you can use in your analysis.
