RNA-seq Bioinformatics

Introduction to bioinformatics for RNA sequence analysis


Do these before coming to the workshop:

1.) 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 are some suggested tutorials. If you have a Mac computer you can use the “Terminal” application to complete these tutorials. If you have access to a linux server at your institution you could also do them there. If neither of those is available you can try a free online terminal application that runs in your browser such as sandbox.io (also includes several relevant tutorials) or COCALC.

2.) Introduction to R tutorial

Knowing R is critical to this workshop. Using R installed on your computer, please work through the following tutorials (~3 hours).

3.) Reading materials

Please read these articles before coming to the workshop:
