EMBL Course: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis

Benes, R. Calogero

The course participants will use BioConductor software and Illumina BaseSpace Cloud apps. R-coding skills and deep knowledge of statistics are not necessary for attendance because most analyses will be performed with OneChannelGUI (a graphical interface to a series of BioConductor tools, which enables handling microarray data analysis as well as RNA-seq data without requiring programming skills). Computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets. Upon request, participants could bring along their own data to analyse.


This course was developed for biologists as the intended audience. Basic knowledge of massively parallel sequencing (MPS) is desirable.
