Introduction to Bioconductor for High-Throughput Sequence Analysis

February, Seattle, USA

Introduction to Bioconductor for Sequence Analysis introduces users with some R experience to Bioconductor, especially working with high-throughput sequence data. Day 1 develops core R and Bioconductor concepts for working with large and complicated data. Participants will become familiar with data classes, packages, and scripting and programming concepts that are important for common and integrated work flows in Bioconductor. Day 2 will put these skills to use for the analysis of RNAseq differential expression data, including initial quality assessment, pre-processing, differential representation, annotation, and visualization. The course involves a combination of presentations and hands-on exercises; participants should come prepared with a modern laptop with wireless internet access.
