The Computational Biology Core at the University of Connecticut’s Institute for Systems Genomics is offering a virtual Model Organism RNA-seq Analysis workshop.

The workshop will cover basic concepts and walk through strategies and scripts on a high performance computing cluster.

The goal is to familiarize attendees with the basic concepts and approaches for gene expression analyses. All code required to complete the full analysis will be provided in a public github repository, and session recordings will be available to all participants after the workshop.

The workshop will take place over 4 days for 3 hours each day.

Dates: January 9-12, 2023 (4 days)

Time: 9.00am - 12.00pm (EST)

Location: Online

Cost: $350/$483 USD for UConn affiliated/External attendees.

Workshop schedule:

Day 1: Introduction to Linux and high performance computing.

Day 2-4: Experimental design, high throughput sequencing basics, quality control, alignment to a reference genome, generating counts, pairwise differential expression analysis, getting gene annotations, and gene ontology enrichment. Tools presented are appropriate for researchers working in systems with a reference genome.

Workshop FAQ:

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of RNA-seq analyses.

What are the prerequisites?

Prior bioinformatic experience is not required. We have dedicated the first day of the workshop to the basics of Linux and high performance computing.

What do I need?

You will need your own computer and to install a few applications. We will send you details of software and installation instructions with your registration acknowledgement email.

Can I bring my own data?

We will provide experimental datasets for use during the workshop, as this helps to keep the workshop moving. There will be time, however, to discuss your own datasets and how you might work with them outside of the workshop.

How much does it cost?

The registration fee is $350/$483USD for UConn affiliated/External attendees.

How do I pay?

The fee is due at the time of registration. UConn affiliates can use KFS accounts. The only other means of payment we currently accept is credit card. Due to some complications we cannot accept international wire transfers at this time.

Where is the workshop?

It will be held on Zoom, and will run from 9:00am to 12:00pm on the dates indicated.

How do I apply?

All registration is “first-come, first-served.” There is no application process. Sign up as soon as possible to ensure your place in the workshop.
