The RNA-Seq analysis tutorials includes two lectures and two hands-on guided tutorials. The lecture materials cover the basics of differential expression analysis and touches on other RNA-seq topics such as transcriptome assembly.
MSI has deployed a cloud service for research computing called Stratus. In its initial iteration, Stratus is designed expressly to satisfy the requirements set forth by the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy for data from the Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (i.e., dbGaP data).
Python is a modern general purpose programming language that is popular in scientific computing for its readable syntax and extremely rich ecosystem of scientific and mathematical modules.
Introduction to common techniques for the analysis and quantitation of proteomics mass spectrometry ("mass spec") data. Topics covered will include the concept of Peptide-Spectra Matching (PSM) versus de novo sequencing, as well as the application of commonly used algorithms such as Andromeda (M
If you are new to bioinformatics this is the best place to start.
This hands-on tutorial will help a new user understand how to use the the Galaxy platform to analyze NGS data by working though the quality control steps needed for Illumina sequencing data.
This two part tutorial will first introduce you to the concept of interactive high performance computing, as distinct from batch computing. We will cover the Citrix (Windows) and NICE EnginFrame (Linux) interactive computing environments hosted by MSI.
This tutorial will provide an introduction to the Linux operating system, with particular attention paid to working from the command line. The tutorial will cover basics such as fundamental commands, editing files, understanding directories and permissions, and remote access.
