This is a two-part workshop. Part-1, starts with a presentation from the Genomics Research Core on best practices in sample handling, followed by a brief introduction to techniques, platforms, and methods used in bulk RNA-Seq experiments. Part-2, focuses on software demonstration using the HSLS-licensed CLC Genomics Workbench.
Participants will learn how to
Experimental biologists seeking to analyze bulk RNA-Seq data generated through experiments or retrieved from a repository such as GEO. The software covered in the workshop operates through a user-friendly, point-and-click graphical user interface, so neither programming experience nor familiarity with the command line interface is required.
