Upcoming Workshops

RNA-Seq Workshop

Now in our 12th year of training researchers, the UC Davis Bioinformatics and Proteomics Cores invite you to attend one or more of our upcoming Bioinformatics and Proteomics workshops. These are suitable for beginners and are also of interest to those with some experience. 

For more information and to register, go to https://registration.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/

Running from August 19-23, this popular workshop contains a rich collection of lectures and hands-on sessions, covering both theory and tools associated with command-line RNA-seq data analysis. Topics include experimental design, cost estimation, data generation, and analysis of RNA-Seq data generated on the Illumina sequencing platform, as well as post differential expression analyses, such as gene set enrichment analysis, Gene Ontology/Pathway analysis, and generation of relevant figures and tables.

Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data utilizing high-performance computing services. Exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using command-line interaction and with RStudio. 

Note: This workshop does NOT cover analysis of single-cell RNA-Seq data

Microbial Community Analysis

From September 3-6, this workshop covers amplicon-based microbial analysis and methodology using high throughput sequencing technologies. Topics will include:

  • Differences between communty analysis with amplicons versus shotgun metagenomics and metatranscriptomics
  • Experimental design
  • Sequence data quality assurance and expectations
  • Processing of amplicon reads (using the python application dbcAmplicons)
  • Analysis of community structure (using R and vegan)
  • Lecture on metagenome assembly and metatranscriptome assembly and annotation
  • Post analysis and visualization (using R)

Exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using command-line interaction and RStudio.

Proteomics Short Course

From September 9-13, this introductory proteome analysis workshop is designed to expose participants to fundamental technology platforms and current methodologies in the field of mass spectrometry-based proteomics. The course will include a combination of equal parts hands-on laboratory work, lectures, and interactive data analysis.

There are two options for attendance:

  • Lecture, lab, and data analysis — limited to 30 participants
  • Lecture and data analysis only — limited to 6 participants. 

There are also a limited number of graduate student scholarships available!
