Date: 06.02.2020 9:00 - 07.02.2020 17:00
Location details: The event is organised at the CSC Training Facilities located in the premises of CSC at Keilaranta 14, Espoo, Finland. The best way to reach us is by public transportation; more detailed travel tips are available.
Language: English
Lecturers: Maria Lehtivaara

  • Free for Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences and governmental research institutes.
  • Free for others.
The seats are filled in the registration order. If you got a seat but cannot attend after all, you have to INFORM US ASAP so that we can give your place to somebody in the waiting list. Failing to do so will reduce your chances to be selected for other CSC courses.
Additional information


After learning the basics of command line usage, HPC and R/Rstudio, it's time to put your new skills in use and use them in RNA-seq data analysis! This course is aimed at bioscientists who are planning on analysing their RNA-seq data. During the course, we will learn the basic steps in RNA-seq analysis and how to use some of the most common analysis tools on command line and in R.

This course is part of the Bioweek 2020. Note that you need to register separately for all the three courses of Bioweek. You can participate to all or only some of the Bioweek courses. We planned the Bioweek 2020 so that we are building on top of the previous knowledge: please notice that the last course (basics of RNA-seq data analysis) has command line, R/RStudio and CSC services usage as prerequisities. Registration to all the courses opens soons.

Bioweek 2020:

3.2.2020 Introduction to HPC
4.-5.2.2020 Data analysis with R
6.-7.2020 Introduction to RNA-seq data analysis

Learning outcome

After the course, participants:

  • can name and discuss the different stages of a basic RNA-seq analysis and common tools used in these steps, 
  • can run some RNA-seq analysis tools on command line
  • import and start analysing their RNA-seq data in R


The participants are required to have basic skills/knowledge in:

  • Command line usage / Linux basics
  • Current CSC services
  • R and Rstudio

Bioweek is structured so that this course builds on top of the earlier courses. This means that the prerequisite skills can be learned on the two courses organised earlier on the same week. If you have no prior knowledge or suspect your knowledge on these subjects, please consider participating in all the three courses.
