Reference Based RNA-Seq Data Analysis  
March18 and 25 2013

We are pleased to announce a new next-generation sequencing workshop organized by the Computational Biology Service Unit (CBSU).

The workshop will focused on reference based RNA-Seq data analysis at introductory level. There will be two sessions in the workshop, a lecture session and a hands-on session.

It is advisable for the workhsop participants to attend our Linux for Biologists workshop if they are new to the Linux computing environment. You can register for this workshop online: part 1, part 2.
