High throughput RNA sequencing allows genome-wide investigation of gene expression and regulation. However, designing an experiment and choosing the right tools for analysis can be challenging. This two-day course aims to teach the basics of obtaining and analyzing RNA-seq data: Experiment design, quality control, alignment and visualization of reads and differential expression analysis. Analysis will be done with tools available on the Tufts High Performance Compute Cluster and example code and tutorials will be available at https://sites.tufts.edu/biotools/tutorials/.
