Course description

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.
