BIOF 074 | Advanced Transcriptome (RNA Seq) Analysis: Hands-on Training

June 9, 2020 to June 12, 2020

ONLINE

Registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is one week before the first day of the course.  If you are unable to register before the deadline, please email: registrar@faes.org or call 301-496-7977 for space availability. 

NIH Fellows or NIH community members being sponsored by their lab and awaiting payment authorization can tentatively hold a seat using the “Reserve A Seat” option. FAES must receive payment within 7 business days after reserving a seat or 3 business days before the start of the workshop, which ever comes first. If payment is not received in this time frame, your reservation will be canceled.

NIH Only: Reserve a Seat

Objectives
Apart from performing the routine differential expression analysis using two different suite of tools, this hands-on training will help participants learn advanced RNA-Seq analysis techniques and tools for detecting snps, fusion genes, allele specific expressions, circular RNAs, viral/bacterial sequence identification, alternative polyadenylation and transcriptional regulatory network analysis.

Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for adequate learning experience. Examples include two laptops, one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, etc.

Highlights

  • Participants will use a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment, specially configured for advanced RNA-Seq analysis in the Amazon Cloud
  • Training provided by experienced active NIH researchers
  • PDF of a cookbook style manual for all exercises
  • Continuing Education Credits

Who should attend

  • Researchers and academics who are interested in exploring the RNA-Seq data for more than what is routinely done.
  • Clinicians who are interested in discovering novel biological regulatory mechanisms looking for potential diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic uses.
  • Biomedical students who are interested in pursuing research on advanced transcriptomics and transcriptional regulatory mechanisms.
  • Scientists in program administration interested in learning and understanding the latest methods and concepts in transcriptome analysis
