Up-to-date RNA-Seq Analysis Training/Courses/Papers

Link: Up-to-date RNA-Seq Analysis Training/Courses/Papers


It's a bit scary for people who do biomedical research to step into the world of computational biology.

I had the same feeling when I inherited an RNA Sequencing (RNA-Seq) project from a senior member in our lab at the beginning of the year 2016. At that time, I have only taken a Digital Biology course on campus and just started to gain experience of using supercomputer through the terminal. Since I always consider learning as peeling an onion (you have to have a shallow overall concept of the outer layer of the onion before going deeper), that's when I created this post to collect related training, courses, and of course, papers about RNA-Seq.

It started out as an ask-for-help post, but as more and more resources I have utilized, now I have some humble experiences to share. Sometimes I feel people hesitate to share their own experience because they think it's not superior to others so it's not worth mentioning at all. However, I think the "beginner's view" has its own and indispensable value in helping other beginners by sharing their "dumb" questions and struggles in doing science. Therefore, I have pointed out what resources are especially useful and organized them in the post accordingly.

Enjoy :)
