RNAseq Using R

The Monash Bioinformatics Platform want to help make introductory bioinformatic approaches part of the research landscape in Biomedicine. To do this, a foundation level of expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The platform will then be available to facilitate this work as well as develop more advanced bioinformatic projects with our researchers.

We are running a two day hands-on workshop with a focus on enabling researchers to be able to analyse RNASeq (next-gen sequencing) data.

  • Day 1, we will begin by teaching an introduction to programming using the R language.
  • Day 2 will focus on using this knowledge to perform bioinformatic data analysis of some RNASeq data.

The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.

For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Where: Foyer, Monash Biomedical Imaging, 762-772 Blackburn Rd Clayton. Get directions with OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.

Setup Requirements: BYO Laptop. No software installation required.. tools will be provided on the day.
