RNA-Seq analysis using Galaxy (13-14 Sep 2017)

Wed, 13/09/2017 - 09:00 to Thu, 14/09/2017 - 12:30

Recommended Participants

Biologists and other life scientists planning to work with RNA-Seq data for differential gene expression. No prior bioinformatics knowledge is required.


  • The tools and workflows for RNA-seq analysis
  • Analysis of RNA-seq data for organisms with reference genomes
  • Web-based and command-line interfaces to bioinformatic tools

Learning Objectives: 

  • Perform QC evaluation and filtering on next-generation sequencing data
  • Use the Galaxy interface to identify differentially expressed genes from a RNA-Seq experiment
  • Identify over-represented gene functions and pathways from a list of differentially expressed genes
  • Visualise RNA-Seq data with the Integrative Genome Viewer
