Partek Flow Hands-on Workshop on Campus

Becker Library is happy to announce that a scientist from Partek® will be on campus on December 11th, 2014, to lead a training workshop on RNA-seq analysis using Partek Flow.

Partek Flow is a web-based software tool designed for next generation sequencing applications including RNA, small RNA and DNA sequence analysis. Following the workshop, interested investigators will have the opportunity to get a free trial of Flow without any commitment. This workshop is hands-on and will run from 9:30am-3:30pm in the computer classroom in Farrell Learning and Teaching Center (FLTC Room 602), with the following agenda:

  • Morning Session 9:30am – 12:00pm:

This session will focus on an overview of RNA-Seq analysis, data import, quality assessment QA/AC (pre-alignment QA/AC, post-alignment QA/QC), base trimming, alignment and gene/transcript abundance estimation.

  • Afternoon Session 1:00pm – 3:30pm:

This session will focus on differential expression detection, filtering gene lists, GO enrichment analysis, variant detection and data visualization. This session ends with a Q&A portion and researchers will have the opportunity to ask questions about the practice data used during the workshop or their own data.

This workshop is free and open to the WUSTL community. Registration is required, so please complete the online registration form to register for the full day workshop. If you have questions contact Maze Ndonwi at 314 362 4737 or ndonwim@wusm.wustl.eduPartek Flow logo
