This is a practical, hands-on tutorial designed to give participants experience with RNA-Seq data analysis using Tophat, Cufflinks, and CummRbund in Galaxy. The analysis in this tutorial is typical of experiments in eukaryotic species with high-quality genomes and genome annotation available.
This lecture will cover the basics of RNA-Seq experimental design and data quality assessment, followed by an overview of data analysis for the detection of differentally expressed genes. Specific subtopics include:
This hands-on tutorial will cover installation and use of the SMRT portal at MSI to analyze PacBio sequencing data. The basics of full genome assembly and transcript assembly will be covered. At the end of this tutorial, participants should be able to:
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.
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 help users learn the basics of compiling and debugging their code on MSI systems. Particular attention will be paid to code written in Fortran, C, and C++. Basic methods for debugging will be outlined, with users being able to explore different debugging tools.
This practical, hands-on tutorial is designed to give participants experience with ChIP-Seq data analysis using the Galaxy platform. The analysis in this tutorial is typical of experiments using ChIP-Seq data to identify transcription factor binding sites in eukaryotic, high quality genomes.
