  • Time: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
  • Location: 6116 Executive Blvd., Room 4075
  • Presenter(s):

This training session will focus on Gene Expression analysis and the rich set of results possible from RNA-Seq based studies. In addition to differential gene expression, researchers also have the opportunity to discover SNPs, and important alternative splicing patterns that result in allele-specific expression. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Alignment
  • Pre/Post Alignment QA/QC 
  • Trimming, filtering reads
  • Quantification
  • Differential Expression Detection using Gene Specific Analysis
  • Variants/Indel Detection and Annotation
  • Visualization (PCA, Dot Plot, Chromosome View, etc.)
  • Allele Specific Expression Analysis
  • Alt-splicing Detection
  • Biological interpretation: Gene Set Analysis and Pathway Analysis


Partek Genomics Suite is  available to all researchers affiliated with CCR
