Description: This workshop is open to everyone, including graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, and community members. We have extra space for UC Davis VetMed affiliates; contact the lead instructor if you are an SVM affiliate. (These spaces will be released to the wait list on Monday, April 27th.)
This two-day hands-on workshop will introduce biologists to doing de novo transcriptome analysis with khmer and Trinity. The primary focus will be on non-model organisms - organisms with no reference genome and poor gene annotations. The workshop will be eukaryote-focused (poly-A mRNA/large genomes/genes with introns).
We will be analyzing a stock data set, and we will be using the Amazon cloud.
