Genome-free RNA-seq assembly and transcriptome analysis leveraging Trinity

Berlin, 11th-15th June 2018


Brian Haas (The Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard, USA)

Dr. Nicolas Delhomme (Umeå Plant Science Center, SE)

Workshop overview

RNA-Seq technology has been transformative in our ability to explore gene content and gene expression in all realms of biology, and de novo transcriptome assembly has enabled opportunities to expand transcriptome analysis to non-model organisms. This workshop provides an overview of modern applications of transcriptome sequencing and popular tools and algorithms for exploring transcript reconstruction and expression analysis in a genome-free manner, leveraging the Trinity software and analysis framework. Attendees will perform quality assessment of Illumina RNA-Seq data, assemble a transcriptome using Trinity, quantify transcript expression, leverage Bioconductor tools for differential expression analysis, and apply Trinotate to functionally annotate transcripts. Additional methods will be explored for characterizing the assembled transcriptome and revealing biological findings. Intended audience

This workshop is aimed primarily at biologist researchers that have basic bioinformatics skills and are pursuing RNA-Seq projects in non-model organisms. Attendees will gain skills needed to successfully approach transcriptome sequencing, de novo transcriptome assembly, expression analysis, and functional annotation as applied to organisms lacking a high quality reference genome sequence. Attendees are also invited to bring a subset of their own data.

Teaching format

The workshop will be delivered over the course of four and a half days, with each session entailing lectures followed by practical hands-on sessions. Most all computing will be done on the cloud and attendees will use their own laptop computers with the Google Chrome web browser providing all the necessary interfaces to the cloud computing environment, including the linux command terminal.

Assumed background for the participants

Basic experience with linux command-line execution and execution of bioinformatics tools would be helpful. We will begin the course with a review of basic linux commands and operations as a refresher. No programming or scripting knowledge is required.
