- Nov 21, 2011RNA-Seq Data Analysis Online Course
Making Sense of RNA-Seq Data
RNA-Seq is sequencing of steady state RNA in a given sample.RNA-Seq is used for 1. identifying allele specific gene expression 2. finding novel transcripts and isoforms and 3. differential gene expression. This training programme exposes participants to the available public domain tools and techniques for the analysis of RNA-Seq data and addresses complete analysis pipeline from mapping reads to differential expression and systems biology. Course delivery includes prerecorded webinars and the exercise labs.
Course will run for four weeks from 02.01.2012 to 29.01.2012.
Course material will be delivered online for each week at the start of the week. Register at http://www.labindia-gpod.com or write to uday@...
