Intro to RNA-seq analysis

Mission Hall, Room 1407 550 16th Street, San Francisco, CA

Gene expression is central to cell biology. Disease pathways often involve changes in the expression levels of at least some genes. To quantify the expression levels, RNA-seq has become one of the most popular experimental methods. This workshop will provide an introduction to a typical bulk RNA-seq protocol and focus on the data analysis steps […]

Intermediate Cytoscape: Networks and Omics Data Visualization

Mission Hall, Room 1407 550 16th Street, San Francisco, CA

This course is a complement to “Introduction to Network Biology and Cytoscape” from the previous day. Following a brief review of the key concepts of network analysis, we will embark on a deep dive into data visualization and advanced Cytoscape features. We will work through three prepared use cases demonstrating various omics data types and […]
