Apart from performing the routine differential expression analysis using two different suite oftools, this hands-on training will help participants learn advanced RNA-Seq analysis techniquesand tools for detecting snps, fusion genes, allele specific expressions, circular RNAs,viral/bacterial sequence identification, alternative polyadenylation and transcriptional regulatorynetwork analysis.

Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills. 

Participants will use a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment, specially configured for advanced RNA-Seq analysis in the Amazon Cloud
Cloud image with fully configured advanced RNA-Seq tools, freely provided to participants
Training provided by experienced active NIH researchers
Cookbook style bound manual for all exercises
Direct, after training support through exclusive forum membership
Continuing Educational Credits.

Who should attend
Researchers and academics who are interested in exploring the RNA-Seq data for morethan what is routinely done.
Clinicians who are interested in discovering novel biological regulatory mechanisms looking for potential diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic uses.
Biomedical students who are interested in pursuing research on advanced transcriptomics and transcriptional regulatory mechanisms.
Scientists in program administrations interested in learning and understanding the latest methods and concepts in transcriptome analysis.
