Using transcriptomics to study developmental plasticity in non-model organisms

View the Project on GitHub hcliedtke/ADDA_taller2


This week, we will be exploring how transcriptomics, specifically RNA-seq can be used to study developmental plasticity in non-model organisms. Our research group studies how the phenotype and development of amphibian tadpoles is influenced by different environmental factors, including predator presence, changes in hydroperiod and background colour.

In this course we will discussing how -omics have helped us to answer questions related to this subject. We will also be working through a hands-on example of how we go about evaluating data obtained from an RNAseq experiment.

The practical sessions of this course will heavily rely on the tidyverse in R. This is a great tool that will make working with -omics data much easier. There are many resources online to help you get started, such as this R book by Brendan Ansell.
