- Attendance at An Introduction to the use of the Rosalind High Performance Computing System is required
RNA sequencing is a popular next generation sequencing method that enables the identification and quantification of both known and novel transcripts across the entire transcriptome, but requires several complex and computationally-intensive processing steps. This course gives an introduction into how researchers with a beginner’s understanding on the command line interface can gain experience with such methods on Rosalind, King’s high performance computing system. RNA-Seq data will be processed and analysed hands-on by working through a guided example using a sample of real published datasets.
- Attendance at An Introduction to the use of the Rosalind High Performance Computing System.
- Basic knowledge of working on the command line is required.
- An account on Rosalind is necessary and access must be fully set up prior to attending this course.
- Basic understanding of RNA sequencing is not necessary but would be beneficial.
