Partek Flow hands-on RNA-Seq data analysis training at WUSM - August 9, 2016

A Field Application Scientist from Partek will be at WUSM on August 9, 2016 to lead a full day workshop that will provide hands-on training on RNA-Seq data analysis in Partek Flow.

The workshop agenda includes:

Morning Session (9:30am – 12:00pm):

  • Import data (fastq, bam, text format) and Perform QA/AC (Pre-alignment QA/AC, Post-alignment QA/QC). Then Trim bases, Align reads and perform Gene/transcript abundance estimate (E/M)
  • Differential expression detection (GSA, ANOVA), Filter gene list and GO Enrichment Analysis
  • Visualization: Quality score distribution, Base composition, PCA scatterplot, Dotplot, Volcano plot, Hierarchical clustering, Chromosome view

Afternoon Session (1:00pm – 3:30pm):

This session starts with integration of RNA-Seq and Gene Expression Microarray data in Partek Flow and ends with a Q&A session. The Q&A portion is open to researchers to who want to discuss questions about the practice data used during the workshop or their own data (feel free to bring your data for Q &A).

Registration is required, to register, please complete the online registration form.
