Galaxy workshop at Research Bazaar
Topic: RNA-Seq in Galaxy
The workshop introduces concept of differential gene expression analysis with nextGen sequencing data, or RNA-Seq, using Galaxy platform. Galaxy has a user-friendly interface and does not require programming or knowledge of Unix for data analysis. The workshop is aimed for new Galaxy users with little or no experience in genomics or high-throughput sequencing.
The workshop program:
- Introduction: Local resources for genomic research
- RNA-Seq in Galaxy: analysis of differential gene expression using high-throughput sequencing data. We will cover general data manipulation in Galaxy and dedicated tools such as tophat (gapped aligner for RNA-Seq reads) and Cufflinks package
- Galaxy workflow. The participants will create, modify and use a Galaxy workflow
- Q&A time.
