Do these before coming to the workshop:
1.) R tutorial
You are expected to be familiar with R before the workshop. If you are unfamiliar with R, here is a suggested tutorial and command reference. Using R installed on your computer please work through the tutorial.
2.) Command line tutorial
You are expected to be familiar with basic command line usage before the workshop. If you are unfamiliar with the command line, below is a suggested tutorial. If you have a Mac computer you can use the “Terminal” application to complete this tutorial. If you have access to a linux server at your institution you could do it there. If neither of those is available you can try a free online termline application that runs in your browser such as COCALC.
3.) Reading materials
Please read these two articles before coming to the workshop:
RNA-seq data fundamentals. RNA Sequencing: The Teenage Years.
RNA-seq analysis and statistics fundamentals. RNA Sequencing Data: Hitchhiker’s Guide to Expression Analysis.
These are just two recently published examples that we find particularly good. We have collected a much more extensive list of resources that should be aware of below. Simply take a look at these and note for future reference.
