The CBW has developed a 2.5 day course covering the bioinformatics concepts and tools available for interpreting a gene list using pathway and network information. The workshop focuses on the principles and concepts required for analyzing and conducting pathway and network analysis on a gene list from any organism, although focus will be on human and model eukaryotic organisms. Please note that this listing is for the in-person version of this workshop. We are also offering an Asynchronous version running from November 11-December 6; you can see details for that offering here. Which Pathway and Network Analysis course should I take? We are offering Pathway and Network Analysis in two formats in 2024. Both formats will cover the same material, and both will have instructors and TAs available to provide help and answer questions. In-person is our classic 2.5-day intensive workshop held in Toronto. This workshop is best for those who like to immerse themselves in the material and receive 1:1 attention from instructors and TAs throughout. The asynchronous virtual format happens over five weeks: each Monday, lecture(s) and lab material are released for participants to work through during the week, and short assignments are due at the end of the week to assess progress. While participants complete most tasks autonomously, they can ask questions and receive instructor/TA help on the course discussion boards or at the instructors’ live/recorded virtual office hours (1 hour per week, Thursdays). This format is great for self-paced learners who like to revisit material as they go and those who prefer online learning.

You will also require your own laptop computer. Minimum requirements: 1024×768 screen resolution, 1.5GHz CPU, 8GB RAM, 10GB free disk space, recent versions of Windows, Mac OS X or Linux (Most computers purchased in the past 3-4 years likely meet these requirements).  This workshop requires participants to complete pre-workshop tasks and readings.

Learning objectives:

Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Get more information about a gene list; Discover what pathways are enriched in a gene list (and use it for hypothesis generation); Find out how a set of genes is connected by e.g. protein interactions and identify pathways, systems and modules within this network; Predict gene function and extend a gene list; We will develop a unified analysis flow chart throughout the course that students will be able to follow after the workshop to conduct their own analysis.
