We are pleased to announce a Next Generation Sequencing and Analysis workshop on the topic of transcriptomics for non-model species.
This bioinformatics course will be delivered by two Trinity RNA-Seq authors Brian Haas (the Broad Institute, MIT, USA) and Dr Alexie Papanicolaou (HIE) and will be geared towards biologists who are working on RNASeq data from species with smaller genomic communities and are interested in further understanding how to analyse these types of data.
