RNA-seq Workshop

We ran a tutorial at NYU Med Center last week on the basics of RNA-seq data analysis. This tutorial was based on the use of our High-Performance Linux cluster, so we actually presented the class as 2 sessions: A 2-hour session on basic Linux commands (for the complete novice) plus writing and submitting Sun Grid Engine scripts.  Then in the 2nd 2-hour session we focus on TopHat/Cufflinks data processing with some sample data files. So this tutorial has some parts that are rather specific to the NYUMC computing system, but it may be quit similar to what computing resources might be available at other schools and research centers.
