We invite you to attend our first Leeds ‘Omics workshop. Based on your responses to our community research interests survey, the first workshop will be on Beginner Transcriptomic (RNA-Seq) Data Analysis.
The course details are as follows:
Title: Beginner Transcriptomic (RNA-Seq) Data Analysis
Dates: Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th March 2017
Times: 09:00 to 17:00 (lunch provided from 12:00 to 13:00)
Location: LIDA Compute Cluster, room 11.06 Worsley Building
Instructor: Dr. Stephen Moss
The learning objectives for the course are as follows; you will be able to:
- Get sequencing data onto the HPC
- Perform quality control on the sequencing reads
- Pre-process and prepare the sequencing reads for further analysis
- Map the sequencing reads to the relevant reference genome
- Assign and count mapped sequencing reads to estimate transcript abundance
- Perform statistical analysis to identify differential expression among samples or treatments

As a prerequisite for the course, you must have basic UNIX-based command line knowledge. If you do not already have a working knowledge of UNIX then you must do the following:
I have arranged with Martin Callaghan from the university’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC – http://arc.leeds.ac.uk) team to provide an Introduction to Linux workshop. This will be held in the Education CBL Cluster, EC Stoner building room 7.67, from 09:30 to 12:30 on Tuesday 14th February 2017. Please contact Martin Callaghan directly via M.Callaghan@leeds.ac.uk to register for the Introduction to Linux workshop.
We have very kindly been supported by DataCamp for this workshop, who will be allowing us free access to their data science learning materials on statistics, as well as R and Python programming.
