Webinar: Using VICE DESeq2 for RNA-Seq Differential Expression Analysis
Friday, November 8
About the Webinar:
As RNA sequencing becomes more affordable, differential expression analyses, which offer invaluable insights into intrinsic cellular processes and stochastic gene expression in biological and biomedical research, have become popular. In this webinar, University of Arizona doctoral candidate Sateesh Peri demonstrates how to use two handy new apps in the CyVerse Discovery Environment: the Read Mapping and Transcript Assembly (RMTA) app and the DESeq2 app (RStudio). For anyone doing RNA-Seq differential expression analyses, using these apps in CyVerse's Visual Interactive Computing Environment (VICE) enables you to easily launch RStudio, have quick access to your Data Store files, and interact with your analyses on the fly.
