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 26 and 27 October 2023.

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, Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) and the Monash Genomics and Bioinformatics Platform with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.

Lead trainers: Sarah Williams, Adele Barugahare, Paul Harrison, Laura Perlaza Jimenez

Facilitators: Nick Matigan, Valentine Murigneux, Magdalena (Magda) Antczak

Infrastructure provision: Uwe Winter

Coordinator: Melissa Burke
