This document contains the notes from a lecture on motif finding given by Dr. Jeremy Buhler in the Bio 4342 course at WU. The lecture covers the different approaches used to represent sequence motifs and to search for sequence motifs in a genome.
Developed by Dr. Jeremy Buhler, this PowerPoint presentation provides an overview of the approaches for quantifying transcript abundance based on RNA-Seq data. The presentation includes a discussion on the benefits and limitations of the two approaches commonly used for RNA quantitation – RPKM and TPM.
Notes from a lecture on sequence alignment given by Dr. Jeremy Buhler in the Bio 4342 course at WU. The lecture covers the theory behind BLAST as well as some of the potential problems and limitations of BLAST.
Similar to the Lecture Notes on Alignment, this is a PowerPoint presentation given by Dr. Jeremy Buhler for the GEP faculty and TA workshops. This presentation covers the basics of alignment, essential for students to correctly interpret BLAST results.
This lecture from Dr. Barak Cohen discusses the major factors to consider (e.g., species to analyze, model for conserved sequences) when using phylogenetic footprinting to identify conserved regions across multiple species. The lecture also illustrates how the weight matrix model can be used to describe sequence motifs, and it provides an introduction to Magma, which uses the multiple species with multiple genes approach to discover conserved motifs.
