Course materials

Short description;
We are offering a two-day Introduction to RNA-seq workshop in Melbourne. 
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.

Catering will be provided. Please bring along your laptop, charged if possible, as there are limited power boards! And if you have any accessibility issues please email
