Prerequisite: You need to have a good understanding of basic Linux command lines before attending the workshop. Please refer to the IT training courses “HPC 0: Introduction to Linux for HPC” on the link (http://arc.leeds.ac.uk/training/introduction-to-unix-for-hpc/) or “HPC 6: HPC for Life Sciences and Bioinformatics” on the link (https://arc.leeds.ac.uk/training/hpc-for-life-sciences-and-bioinformatics/) if you need to learn the usage of Linux command lines.
The content of the workshop will cover:
1. Quality control of raw data
2. Align the processed data to the reference genome
3. Count reads to quantify the gene expression
4. Carry out the statistical analysis to identify the differential gene expression among groups of samples
5. Visualization of the data
