RNAseq Analysis Workshop

cal 7 September 2016, 9.30am to 5.30pm



 

Scope and Topics

The course is aimed at life scientists who have already produced RNA-seq data, or are planning to perform RNA-seq experiments and want to learn the best practice to analyze these type of data. It will consist of 3 hours of theoretical lessons and 4 hours of practical exercises.

Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to:

  • Align RNA-seq data to a reference genome
  • Estimate known gene and transcript expression
  • Perform differential expression analysis
  • Discover novel isoforms
  • Visualize and summarize the output of RNA-seq analyses

International Speaker

DG Prof. Daniel Gautheret

  • Professor at Paris South University
  • Head, Bioinformatics Facility, Gustave Roussy Cancer Center

Professor Daniel Gautheret is a Group leader at the Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (Paris South University) and the Head of the bioinformatics facility at Gustave Roussy Cancer Center in Villejuif.

His team is involved in the development of numerous algorithms and software dedicated to RNA analysis, including RNAProf (Software for the analysis of differential processing events from RNA-seq data) and ERPIN (a RNA Motif search program).
