Adventures in Bioinformatics: David Powell

Differential expression analysis with Degust and topconfects

David will present some of the recent work from Monash Bioinformatics Platform including their interactive web-based tool for RNA-seq differential expression testing, Degust.  He will discuss how degust works, and why it hits a "sweet-spot", and also, the ongoing developments of the tool. He will also present the R package, topconfects, for estimating confident effect sizes from RNA-seq or microarray data.   This package allows ranking of genes by effect size, while still controlling the False Discovery Rate.

Note: If you are doing the methylation workshop this talk is part of your lunch break.
