NIH Fellows or NIH community members being sponsored by their lab can enroll tentatively, using the Contract: SF-182 option on the workshop’s registration site while waiting for authorization of payment. Enrollment is not guaranteed until payment is received.
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.
- 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
- Cookbook style bound 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
Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills
