Jerry Davison, FHCRC Genomics & Bioinformatics Shared Resource

Day 1 class date: Friday Nov 7 in M1-A305/A307, 9:00am - 1:00pm

Day 2 class date: Friday Nov 14 in M1-A305/A307, 9:00am - 1:00pm

The FHCRC Genomics & Bioinformatics Shared Resource is presenting a short course over two half-days at the FHCRC Day Campus teaching aspects of computing with R. Registration is now open, attendance is limited to FHCRC faculty, staff and students, and Cancer Consortium and UW CFAR members.

The course material is at an intermediate level and intended for scientists who are familiar with and comfortable using R; class members will use their personal laptops to access high-performance computers and work with example data.

Topics covered: day 1, using Linux operating system computers, including for FHCRC attendees the computing resources provided by the Hutch scientific computing group; common Linux commands, and using multiple cores to speed execution. There are in-class exercises, we’ll discuss your solutions. An introduction to RNAseq analysis follows immediately: aspects of experiment design, sequence alignment, counting reads, filtering your data, and calculating differential representation. More in-class exercises and your solutions. RNAseq instruction and discussion continues on day 2.

To register for the course complete the form at the web page below. If you have questions about the course please contact jdavison@fhcrc.org.


We’ll email registrants more information on 31 October.
