RNAseq alignment, quantification and transcripts discovery
The Toulouse Genotoul bioinformatics platform, in collaboration with the MIAT unit, organize a 1,5 day long training course for bio-informaticians and biologists aiming at learning sequence analysis. It focuses on (protein coding) gene expression analysis using reads produced by ‘RNA-Seq’. This training session is designed to introduce sequences from ‘NGS’ (Next Generation Sequencing), particularly Illumina platforms (HiSeq). You will discover the standards file formats, learn about the usual biases of this type of data and run different kinds of analyses, such as spliced alignment on a reference genome, novel gene and transcript discovery, expression quantification of coding genes and transcripts. The biostatistics part (differential expression analysis) is NOT included.
