Gene enrichment analysis is the most popular systematic approach to assign ontologies, pathways, and transcription factors to gene lists usually resulted from high throughput experiments. This short course introduces the two most frequently applied methods to locate the common features of large gene lists, and provide opportunities to practice this analysis in the most common research scenarios using GeneTrail (for gene set enrichment analysis) and WebGestalt (for over-representation analysis), the two web tools used most often in the field.
You get written material, video explanations for the background, and prepared example data files for practices. You are provided with (almost) real life discussions between a wet-lab biologist and a bioinformatician to clarify the most common misunderstandings related to this analysis. You are led step by step by two experts of the field, both active researchers; and in the meantime, you are challenged to proof your knowledge in quizzes.
If you have a solid background in molecular biology research, you will be able to expert these methods in a maximum of 8-10 active course hours, but if you have only a general idea of the field, you will get a plenty of background material to learn and practice all in a few days. We recommend to cover all the provided material approximately in a week to maximize the efficiency of your learning.
As you know, bionformatics and data analysis skills are highly demanded among molecular biology and pharma researchers. Why not equip yourself with these easy but very useful tools to extend your future potential as a researcher?تحديث بتاريخ 22 March, 2018
