The Bioinformatics Core is piloting a workshop on RNA-Seq analysis on December 14 &15 from 9:00am-1:00pm (ET) each day. Although there is no cost for this workshop, please respond email cgates@med.umich.edu to reserve a seat.  Note that attendees must be available for both days.


This virtual, hands-on workshop introduces the basic steps in analyzing differential gene expression in RNA-Seq data.

  • By the end of the course, attendees will be able to
    • Articulate the impact of experimental design and sequencing protocol on analytical results
    • Transform raw sequencing data into annotated differential expression values using a suite of open-source tools.
    • Identify common data quality problems and understand their impact and possible mitigations
  • This workshop is targeted toward researchers who would like to be able to run RNA-Seq analysis on their own. It assumes a very basic familiarity with genetics, the command line, and R or R-Studio.
  • Sample data will be provided; attendees will use their own workstation laptop to run the tools. Setup instructions and assistance will be provided in advance of the workshop.
  • The workshop will be conducted over Zoom; Zoom recordings and digital course content will be made available to attendees. (Attendees must have reliable access to the internet.)
  • The workshop will be conducted in two 4 hour blocks from 9:00am-1:00pm (ET).
