No lecture slides for this class. We’ll spend the entire time working on Step 1 script.
Homework: Introduction to the Tidyverse (~4hrs) - due before the start of class on March 6th.
We’ll begin this class by reviewing how to access R packages and help documentation, as well as understanding the basic structure of an R script and RStudio project. We’ll then access annotation data before reading our Kallisto results into R.
- Review basic elements of an R script
- Understand the importance of a study design file
- Learn how to access R packages, and their help documentation
- Read Kallisto transcript abundance measurements into the R environment using TxImport

vignette for the Tximport package - the R package we’ll use to read the Kallisto mapping results into R.
Differential analyses for RNA-seq: transcript-level estimates improve gene-level inferences* F1000Research, Dec 2015. This paper describes the Tximport package and its application for handling transcript-level expression measurments from lightweight aligners (Salmon, Sailfish, Kallisto)
