We will meet in Room 4.144 of Mezes Hall (MEZ). The lab has Mac computers. We encourage you to use the computers provided in the classroom for these tutorials, but you may also bring your personal laptops. Please make sure you have an ssh client installed on your personal laptop. All macs come with terminal, so no installation is required.

This is a course designed to give you an overview of RNA-Sequencing in a hands-on manner. It will comprise of lectures and guided tutorials. For the tutorials, we will be used a canned dataset, but a large part of the last class day will be devoted to practicing the techniques learned on your own dataset. This course has the following objectives:
- To teach you about the different options that are available to you when setting up a RNA-Seq study.
- To teach you about the different options that are available to you when analyzing a RNA-Seq dataset.
- To familiarize you with how the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) can be used to simplify and speed up your data analysis.
- To familiarize you with some of the typically used RNA-Seq analyses methods.
- To provide a vocabulary to understand NGS and RNA-Seq terminology and to provide give you a starting point of where to begin you own data analysis, and enough experience that you can begin that analysis on your own.

Many thanks to Dr. Scott Hunicke-Smith and Dr. Jeff Barrick who taught the first Introduction to NGS course at UT. Many slides and wiki pages have been borrowed and adapted from their initial course.
Also, thanks to Anna Battenhouse and Benni Goetz who have also provided some material for this course.
