This 1.5 day workshop will include a short introduction to next-generation sequencing theory and an introduction to Galaxy. The hands-on component of the workshop introduces the concepts of RNA-Seq analysis from data preparation through to statistical testing for differential gene expression (DGE). Using Galaxy, a platform that provides a user-friendly interface to bioinformatics tools, you will learn about the tools, data types and workflow of DGE analysis.

The afternoon session will cover more advanced topics, including identification of novel transcript isoforms and an introduction to pathway analysis, along with practice exercises.

Recommended participants: Biologists and other life scientists planning to work with RNA-Seq data for differential gene expression. Participants must bring their own laptops with wireless network capability.
