Training in Advanced Transcriptomics (RNA-Seq) Analysis

June 9-12,2020


National Institutes of Health(ONLINE) 9000 Rockville Pike
Building 60, Room 162
Bethesda, MD 20892, USA


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.

Hands-on Skills/Tools Taught

  • Differential expression analysis: HISAT2 tools
  • Differential expression analysis: Trinity tools
  • Fusion gene analysis: STAR-Fusion
  • SNP detection: GATK
  • Allele specific expression: WASP
  • Circular RNA identification: circexplorer
  • Alternative polyadenylation: DaPars
  • Viral integration: VirTect
  • Network analysis: Cytoscape


  • 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
