RNASeq Data Analysis | 5-Day In-Person Workshop

14. - 18.10.2024 09:00 - 17:00 Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC 1 250 EUR without VAT English Seats available: 12

Some people think RNASeq data analysis is easy. They are wrong!

RNASeq, sometimes also known as whole transcriptome sequencing, is the sequencing of a sample's mRNA content. Notably, it is a method by which a point-in-time snapshot of the transcriptome can be obtained. 

Easy it sounds, difficult it gets! This is why we organize this workshop every year and 2024 is no exception. You will be introduced into the Linux operating system and than you will do ... RNASeq data analysis! By using various free tools.

Join our 9th edition of the in-person RNASeq workshop in 2024 and experience true enthusiasm!



Day 1 - As simple as it gets

  • General introduction to data analysis
  • Unix environment for bioinformatical analysis
  • Introduction to the Linux system
  • Basic commands in Terminal and their practical use
  • Overview of common data formats

Day 2 and 3 - NGS data handling

  • Working with data from NCBI and other databases (SRAtool kit)
  • Quality control of sequence data (FastQC, MultiQC, ...)
  • Editing sequences in various programs (FASTX-toolkit ...)
  • Introduction to alignment
  • Alignment and read mapping
  • Introduction to R

Day 4 and 5 - RNASeq data analysis

  • Mapping to genome and gene expression estimation
  • Mapping to transcriptome and transcript abundance estimation
  • Count data standardization and quality control
  • Exploratory data analysis, dimensionality reduction, clustering
  • Analysis of differential expression
  • Multiple comparisons problem
  • Biological interpretation using Gene Set Enrichment Analysis
  • Data visualization


Who Should Attend?

  • Biologists, bioinformaticians, healthcare professionals and laboratory workers interested in analyzing RNASeq data
  • Great for beginners
  • Suitable also if you want to deepen or revive your knowledge

What will you learn?

  • Well, you will learn RNASeq Data Analysis ... :-) Basic handling of raw reads and read mapping, selecting the most appropriate RNASeq analysis approach etc.
  • You will gain hands-on experience using a range of data resources and tools: HiSAT2, Salmon, MultiQC, R, DESeq2, FDR, goseq, GO, KEGG...


  • This is a hands-on computer workshop with presentations and practical demonstrations.
  • A necessary prerequisite is computer literacy and basic knowledge of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR). Knowledge of BASH and the terminal is not required but is an advantage. 


General information
