RNAseq Interest Group and Workshop

  • RNAseq is a new technique used to quantify the full transcriptomes of tissues or cells. This event will lay groundwork for those who are new to this method, and also serve as an interest group for those who are currently using this technique ​to ​discuss pipelines and technical aspects; we also plan some hands-on time using toy files for analysis. Bring your laptop and questions.
