Course on Introduction to Microarray Gene Expression and Functional Analysis 2014
The CNIO Bioinformatics Unit is organising a Course on Introduction to Microarray Gene Expression and Functional Analysis, to be held on Tuesday, June 24th 2014
) in advance if you wish to attend the course.
Tuesday, June 24th, "Introduction to Microarray Gene Expression and Functional Analysis"
This introductory course on microarray analysis is targeted to people without previous knowledge on this field. We will cover the basic steps that should be followed to obtain a list of differentially expressed genes, starting from raw expression data.
Students will get familiar with raw data format, background substraction and normalization procedures that are needed before any differential expression analysis. Some notions on experimental design and statistical tests will be given, and attendees will learn the value of biological replicates and the importance of multiple testing corrections. Finally, functionally enrichment analysis and analysis of pathways and networks will be also seen.
To make the hands-on sessions more interesting, we invite you to bring your own data. The bioinformatics tools to be used in the course are all currently available.
