Remote RNA-Seq Workshop
July 27, 2020, 9 a.m. - July 31, 2020, 5 p.m.
UC Davis Bioinformatics Core, email@example.com
This workshop will include a rich collection of lectures and hands-on sessions, covering both theory and tools associated with command-line RNA-seq data analysis. Participants will explore experimental design, cost estimation, data generation, and analysis of RNA-Seq data generated on the Illumina sequencing platform. Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data utilizing high performance computing services. Exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using command-line interaction. There are no prerequisites other than basic familiarity with genomic concepts. Anyone with an interest in RNA sequence analysis is welcome! Some familiarity with the command-line and R is helpful. However, we will dedicate time on the first day to bringing everyone up-to-speed to be able to run the commands needed during this workshop.
Participants must bring their own laptops to use, which should have a recent version of R, Rstudio, and Java installed, and an application that allows them to ssh into a server (e.g. Bash for Windows, or Terminal for Apple), as well as the ability to connect to the internet via wifi.
The registration fee is $1,500 for UC students, postdocs, staff and faculty, $1,750 for Non-UC academic or non-profit participants and $2,500 for other participants. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment.
