Webinar: Back to Basics - Overview of RNA-Seq Originally aired November 12, 2013. The basics of RNA-Seq analysis in non-model organisms One revolutionary aspect of RNA-Seq technology is its ability to provide information regarding transcript abundances in species whose genomes have not yet been sequenced. In such situations, transcript quantification involves a combination of de novo assembly and abundance estimation, both of which are challenging tasks when a reference genome is unavailable. Dr. Dewey, recipient of several acedemic honorable mentions, will describe the basic steps in performing these analyses with examples from his group’s work on characterizing the transcriptome of the axolotl salamander’s regenerating limb. Identifying allele-specific expression from RNA-seq dataDr. Liu, founder of the Liu Laboratory for Computational Genomics at the University of Indiana, will provide an informative background of the bioinformatics considerations of deriving allele-specific expression from RNA-seq data. He will further explain his group's efforts in integrating transcription factor binding prediction in order to identify functional regulatory variants, all while using allele-specific expression data.
