EMBL-EBI: Transcriptomics Data and Tools (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)
Organizer: University of Cambridge
Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training
Start: Thursday, 25 February 2021 @ 13:00
End: Friday, 26 February 2021 @ 16:30
Venue: Craik-Marshall Building
Country: United Kingdom
Postcode: CB2 3AR
Scientific topic: Gene expression, Transcriptomics, BioinformaticsTarget audience:
- The module is suitable for researchers interested in gene expression analysis and visualisation
- Graduate students
- Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
- Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout.
This workshop is designed for researchers interested in learning about functional genomics data, how to access, retrieve and use the data from ArrayExpress and hands-on experience in using Expression Atlas, a resource to find information about gene and protein expression across species and biological conditions such as different tissues, cell types, developmental stages and diseases among others. This will include an overview on how gene expression data is curated and analysed in Expression Atlas and a practical activity to demonstrate how to access and visualise gene expression analysis results. These activities should help you answer questions such as "where is my favourite gene expressed?" or "how does its expression change in a disease?".
This workshop is not going to be a session on how to run your own bioinformatics analysis but to use the tools that have been developed in order to be able to take advantage of others’ work and prepare your work to be reproducible.
