When & Where
Wed, April 27, 2016 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
D-Lab: Breakout Conference Room 371

There is a wealth of publicly available genomic data out there in the form of microarray and RNA-Seq datasets. This workshop will introduce you to the rich ecosystem of genomic data repositories and analysis tools available for discovery and utilization of open genomic data.  We will focus on a handful of bioinformatics tools that are accessible to researchers without programming expertise. We will also review current publisher and funder data sharing policies to understand “open data” as it relates to genomic research.We will spend the last 45 minutes of the workshop on a hands-on gene expression reanalysis use case that shows you how to:

  • Search the Gene Expression Omnibus for datasets of interest
  • Use GEO2R to analyze gene expression data and generate a list of differentially expressed genes
  • Use pathway and network tools to interpret that gene list in a biological context
