Contract: SF-182

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.

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
  • 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
