de.NBI/de.STAIR Training Course: A primer for RNA-Seq processing, interpreting and visualization

June 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - June 29, 2018 @ 1:00 pm



This workshop intends to introduce the graphical, web-based Galaxy RNA-workbench (https://usegalaxy.org) for customized analysis of RNA-Seq data. Therefore, we will present Linux and Docker backgrounds, introduce methods for exploration of NGS data and fundamental statistics. In practical tutorials, workflow development, functional predictions of RNAs and visualization strategies for metatranscriptomic data will be trained.


    • Introduction to Galaxy RNA-workbench
    • RNA-Seq data analysis and workflow development
    • Fundamental statistics and file formats
    • Functional RNA analysis
    • Basic visualization


This workshop is intended for MSc/PhD students, postdocs and researchers with background in life science research. During registration please hand over a poster which presents a freely chosen topic to a broad range of researchers aiming to get in contact with each other and to exchange experiences.

For the course it is inevitable to bring your own notebook with you. To get everything running, at least 4Gb of memory (RAM) is required.

This course is designed for ~15 participants. If we receive (a lot) more applications, we will choose participants based on the relevance of their application and/or a first-come-first-serve basis. Your attendance is pending until confirmation after registration.

To apply for the training course, please fill in the application form and submit a poster.
