Integrating RNA-seq Into Undergraduate Teaching.

In recent years, next generation sequencing (NGS) has become a mainstay of modern biology. Two groups have been established to facilitate the integration of RNA-seq (i.e., whole transcriptome shotgun sequencing) data analysis into undergraduate biology curriculum, The Genome Consortium for Active Teaching: NextGen Sequencing Group (GCAT-SEEK;, and iPlant Collaborative’s DNA Subway ( In this workshop, resources developed by these two groups will be presented. Workshop participants will learn about how to utilize RNA-seq data repositories and how to use freely available on-line and downloadable software tools to analyze RNA-seq data. Examples of instructional materials developed by the two presenters will also be presented. Workshop participants will be require to bring a laptop with wireless Internet capabilities. Since software will need to be loaded, the participants need administrative rights to their operating system.
