Upcoming Workshop – Advanced Transcriptomics (RNA-Seq) Analysis

BIOF 074 | Advanced Transcriptomics (RNA Seq) Analysis

September 17, 2019 to September 20, 2019

Registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is one week before the first day of the course.  If you are unable to register before the deadline, please email: registrar@faes.org or call 301-496-7977 for space availability.

NIH employees paying with the signed vendor copy of the SF-182 form, please email: registrar@faes.org

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


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

Who should attend:

  • Researchers and academics who are interested in exploring the RNA-Seq data for more than 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 administration interested in learning and understanding the latest methods and concepts in transcriptome analysis

Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills
