Hands-On Training Schedule

1-4 pm
Falk Library Classroom 2 (upstairs)

May 25th: RNA-seq Analysis: CLC Genomics Workbench

  • This hands-on workshop will provide an introduction to RNA-seq analysis using the library-licensed CLC Genomics Workbench. Participants will learn how to (1) align RNA-seq data to a reference genome, (2) calculate known genes and transcript expressions, (3) perform differential expression analysis, and (4) discover novel exons. Register here.

June 1st: Variant Detection & Analysis: CLC Genomics workbench, dbSNP, COSMIC, & more

  • This hands-on workshop focuses on human genetic variations and cancer mutations. It covers identification of variants using CLC Genomics Workbench software and introduces variation databases (dbSNP, ClinVar, OMIM, DGV, PheGenI, HGMD, NextBio, COSMIC, Broad Tumor Portal, ExAc Browser, RegulomeDb). The workshop will also teach how to use bioinformatics tools for functional analysis of mutations (EBI Variant Effect Predictor). Register here.

June 22nd: Pathway Analysis: NIH DAVID & IPA

  • This hands-on workshop introduces open access and commercial biological pathway informatics tools. First we will learn how to mine a list of differentially expressed genes associated with a disease of interest by searching the NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) using the library-licensed tool NextBio. Then we will focus on uncovering the biology hidden behind the extracted gene list by searching protein-protein interactions and literature-curated gene/protein knowledgebases using pathway informatics software, including Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) and NIH DAVID. Register here.

These classes are approved for AMA Category 2 CME credit.
