Workshop Topics

This workshop, 'RNA-seq QC and Exploratory Data Analysis Using Bioconductor Workshop', is designed to expand upon the Bioconductor training provided in the first Bioconductor workshop; it is an intermediate-level lecture that presupposes some knowledge of R like that found in our 'Fundamentals of R' workshop. The topics presented herein include the following:

  • Standard exploratory analyses for RNA-seq Data
  • Cleaning data / removing artefacts
  • Transformations for improving model fit
  • Box plots for between-sample distribution comparison
  • PCA and MDS plotting
