Gene expression analysis workshop

This two and a half day bioinformatics course is presented by the Centre for Genomic Research and the Computational Biology Facility at the University of Liverpool.

The next dates for this course are yet to be confirmed.

The course primarily focuses on practical computer sessions designed to provide delegates with hands-on experience of the informatics involved in analysing RNAseq datasets to detect and measure differential gene expression and the use of multi-omic integration to predict key driver genes and genesets. 

The following topics will be covered in the workshop:

  • Sequencing quality control (fastQC & sickle)
  • Linux refresher
  • RNAseq alignment to genomic reference (tophat2, samtools)
  • Basic R introduction
  • Differential gene expression analysis (R, edgeR)
  • Multi-omics integration.

Attendees are required to have basic linux command line skills. Candidates can be advised on how to gain these skills in an easy and free manner.
