Date and time

Thursday, March 28, 2019 · 2 - 5pm PDT


UCSF Mission Bay Campus Mission Hall Room 1401/1402 550 - 16th Street San Francisco, CA 94158


Gene expression is central to cell biology. Disease pathways often involve changes in the expression levels of at least some genes. To quantify the expression levels, RNA-seq has become one of the most popular experimental methods. This workshop will provide an introduction to a typical bulk RNA-seq protocol and focus on the data analysis steps for recovering actionable insights. Attendees will learn to explore and understand RNA-seq data using Galaxy — an easy-to-use web-based platform. No data analysis or RNA-seq experience is required. Bring your laptop!

== Presenter ==

Krishna Choudhary, Gladstone Institutes. Krishna is a biostatistician at the Bioinformatics Core, Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology. He has published statistical methods for analyzing next-generation sequencing based “omic” data and stochastic models for gene expression. He has taught STEM subjects at various levels for more than eight years.

About the organizer

The emerging field of precision medicine demands a new approach to research that harnesses the power of data science. This requires biomedical researchers and practicing clinicians with skills in quantitative and computer sciences as well as modern computing and data infrastructure to support relevant research activities and implement findings in clinical practice. The UCSF Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute is working to build a foundation of faculty and knowledge assets in computational health sciences and bring together a community of thinkers interested in this emerging field. Our initiatives are focused on enhancing education and infrastructure as well as building community with the goal of advancing computational health sciences in research, practice, and education—in support of precision medicine for all.


Based in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, the Gladstone Institutes is an independent state-of-the-art biomedical research institution that empowers its world-class scientists to find new pathways to cures.

At Gladstone, over 350 scientists and trainees use visionary science and technology in cardiovascular biology, immunology, neuroscience, and stem cell biology to overcome unsolved diseases. They are supported by cutting edge core facilities and essential administrative partners.
