Event description

Description

Introduction to Galaxy Australia: Differential Gene Expression from Bacterial RNA-seq Data

This workshop will introduce attendees to Galaxy Australia and its use in RNA-seq and differential gene expression (using bacterial data). A talk and demonstration will be followed by a hands-on tutorial.

The workshop has been organised by the Biosciences Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (DeVL) Galaxy Australia project and EMBL-ABR and will be led by Dr Anna Syme from Melbourne Bioinformatics, who is coordinating training for Galaxy Australia. Anna will lead the workshop from Melbourne, with trained facilitators on hand at venues across Australia to assist participants locally.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

Researchers and students with an interest in RNA-seq and differential gene expression.

Knowledge of basic biology is assumed.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this training, participants will be able to use tools in Galaxy Australia to investigate differential gene expression from bacterial RNA-seq data.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED

Galaxy Australia

  • Log in.

RNA-seq

  • What is it?

  • How can we use Galaxy Australia and RNA-seq data to investigate differential gene expression in bacteria?

Visualising results

  • We will use the web tool Degust to visualise our results.

WHAT TO BRING

Please bring along your own laptop with an up to date web browser installed (Chrome or Firefox are fine). Attendees external to the University of Sydney will need to be able to connect to eduroam.

This workshop is part of a series of Galaxy Australia events. If you'd like to hear when registrations open for other events, please subscribe to EMBL-ABR News.
