The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program has organized a hands-on class in which participants will learn about RNA-Seq and DNA-Seq data analysis and how to integrate NGS data with microarray data using Partek Flow. This two-part class will be held on August 30, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The morning session will be devoted to analysis using a sample dataset. For the afternoon session, which is designed as an open lab, researchers are encouraged to bring their own data for analysis.

Participants will learn to use the following features of Partek Flow:

  • Data import in FASTQ format
  • QA/QC
  • Alignment
  • Gene/transcript abundance estimate
  • Differential Expression Detection
  • Gene list filtering
  • GO enrichment analysis
  • Variant detection
  • Variant annotation and filtering
  • Visualization
    • Quality score distribution
    • Base composition
    • PCA scatterplot
    • Dotplot
    • Hierarchical clustering
    • Chromosome view
  • Integration of RNA-Seq with Microarray Gene Expression Data

This class will be taught by Partek staff and is free and open to NIH staff.
