Dash Bioinformatics: Building RNA Sequencing and Analysis Apps

With UC Berkeley PhD Candidate, Alyssa Morrow

Thursday May 20th 1pm EDT

In this special webinar, Alyssa Morrow will show you how to use Dash and the Pileup.js component to explore and visualize genomic sequencing data!

The technology powering our urgently needed vaccines today is the encoding of messenger RNA. These are molecules that provide blueprints for constructing the body's proteins. Experts and researchers manipulate those blueprints, isolate and track changes within the transcriptome, and achieve medical breakthroughs!

Alyssa Morrow gives us a look behind the some of the tools and methods powering vaccine and drug developments including:

  • Overview of mRNA research methodologies
  • Analysis of changes in expression of genes across RNA-seq samples
  • Utilizing Dash and the Pileup.js component from Dash Bio for visualizations
  • How to Power your Own Analysis
