RNAseq analysis in R workshop – applications open

RNAseq analysis in R workshop

Applications now open

We are now inviting applications for our next RNAseq workshop.


Workshop date: 21st and 23rd of September 2016

Location: Royal Children’s Hospital, 50 Flemington Rd, Parkville VIC 3052

Cost: approx $60 (to be confirmed)

Applications close: Monday 15th August

You can apply here: http://goo.gl/forms/Ico6MOvadgzCQtkS2

In this workshop, you will be learning how to analyse RNA-seq count data, using R. This will include reading the data into R, quality control and performing differential expression analysis and gene set testing, with a focus on the limma-voom analysis workflow. You will learn how to generate common plots for analysis and visualisation of gene expression data, such as boxplots and heatmaps. This workshop is aimed at biologists interested in learning how to perform differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data when reference genomes are available.

As a rough guide to what the workshop will cover, see the workshops materials: http://combine-australia.github.io/RNAseq-R/ (excluding mapping).


Some knowledge of the R programming language is assumed.


If accepted, we will notify you in late August, and give you the option to register for the workshop.

Priority will be given to people who have some R experience (you don’t have to be an expert!), or to those who are willing to do some R study before the workshop (either a workshop or in your own time).
