The Bioinformatics Team are investigating a workable solution to offer some of the courses on a remote basis and will be in contact with updates as soon as possible. Where courses cannot be offered online, we will advise new classroom dates as soon as we are able. Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication. Course materials are available [here](https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/training.html#fagl). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
