Zebrafish are widely used to study development, toxicity and disease, and functional genomics is used throughout the field to identify new pathways and mechanisms and for comparison to other model systems and humans. In this hands-on course, participants will learn how to design functional genomics experiments, manage and analyse RNA-seq datasets from zebrafish, and compare results to other species. The aim of the course is to equip researchers with the tools to carry out functional analysis and data visualisation of RNA-seq data that has already been mapped to the genome and been analysed for differential gene expression. The course will be relevant to researchers working on a wide range of topics and will use real datasets from our lab for hands-on analysis.
This course will cover:
Zebrafish anatomical term enrichment
Data and metadata submission
Basic tools for data visualisation using R
