In this seminar, we discuss the use of expVIP, an expression Visualisation and Integration Platform, which allows easy analysis of RNA-seq data combined with an intuitive and interactive visualisation interface. Users can analyse public and user-specified datasets with minimal bioinformatics knowledge and generate a custom web browser to visualise, sort and filter the RNA-seq data. To exemplify its use in crop research we developed a flexible wheat expression browser (www.wheat-expression.com) which we will discuss in the seminar.
Participants will be able to:
- Learn how to navigate the expVIP visualization interface at www.wheat-expression.com
- Create custom expression browsers for your species of interest
- Integrate your data to previously published datasets to expand your biological conclusions
- Generate new hypothesis from RNA-seq samples
