Hi all,

I am a PhD student with biology background. I recently inherit a RNA Sequencing project from another PhD student in my lab. We already have paired-ended RNA-Seq data generated from Illumina HiSeq but haven't started analysis yet. I have basic Linux command line training but have no idea about how to analyze RNA-Seq data. I did a little bit of research and started to take free online courses and read papers.

Could anybody recommend me more up-to-date online trainings or courses?

I'll recommend our transcript quantification tool Salmon (http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2015/10/03/021592), which has also been improved considerably since that pre-print due, in part, to our adoption of quasi-mapping (http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/01/16/029652).

A good resource for beginners is also the RNA-seqlopedia. It describes the whole tour from experimental design to analysis. The only thing I'm missing there are descriptions of confounding effects, like batch effects. But these are described in some of your other resources.

We have a workflow for using R/Bioconductor packages including DESeq2 for gene-level differential expression:

This was published and reviewed on F1000Research:

Also, I now recommend new users to try tximport as input to the DE tools in Bioconductor:
