This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘Single cell RNAseq analysis in R’. This workshop took place over two, 3.5 hour sessions on 22 and 3 August 2022.

Event description

  • Analysis and interpretation of single cell RNAseq (scRNAseq) data requires dedicated workflows. In this hands-on workshop we will show you how to perform single cell analysis using Seurat - an R package for QC, analysis, and exploration of single-cell RNAseq data. 

  • We will discuss the ‘why’ behind each step and cover reading in the count data, quality control, filtering, normalisation, clustering, UMAP layout and identification of cluster markers. We will also explore various ways of visualising single cell expression data.

This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.
