The tutorial data set includes 9 samples equally divided into 3 treatment groups. Sequencing was performed by an Illumina HiSeq (paired-end reads), but the workflow can be easily adapted for data generated by other sequencers. Each sample has 2 fastq files for a total of 18 fastq files.  

You can obtain the tutorial data set through Partek Flow.
