Design an RNA-seq experiment pertaining to your own research. It might be an experiment you are actually doing, one you are planning to do, or one that is totally made up. Write a short pretend e-mail proposing the RNA-seq experiment to your PI or to a collaborator who will help you. Be sure to include the following:
Find a paper in your field that has performed RNA-seq. Read their methods section to determine how they performed and analyzed their RNA-seq experiment.
Select one plot you produced in DESeq2 to turn into a figure. Import your plot into powerpoint (ok) or Illustrator (better) or some other comparable illustration software you plan to use for publishing your own figures. Turn the pdf generated from R into a publication quality figure with a legend. This may require modifying things like the axis text size or font. You may need to change the axis text itself (you can cover over the old one if you're using powerpoint) or overlay more text for clairty. You may need to add units to the legends. Be sure to include a formal Figure legend with a Figure title and a description of the figure and briefly how it was generated. Save your figure and legend together on the same page and upload it to canvas as a standard paper (letter) sized .pdf file.
Here are some .pdf's you can use in case you have trouble with the ones you generated in class. You only need to pick one:
