UPC Bioinformatics Day Agenda
Time: Monday June 20, 8:30 am to 1 pm
Location: Learning Center, Wilson Dental Library (DEN 21)
Breakfast and lunch are provided for all registered attendees.
8:45 AM Breakfast
9:00 AM—10:30 AM Workshop #1: RNA-seq experiment design and data analysis
Part One--“Key considerations in RNA-seq experimental design”.
Covering some of the most important issues in RNA-seq experiment preparation, we will help you avoid making common and costly mistakes in designing RNA-seq experiments.
Part Two--“Analyze RNA-seq data with Partek Flow”
We will provide an overview on RNA-seq data analysis, with live demo of Partek Flow. It is specifically designed for USC researchers who are planning RNA-seq experiments and/or already have RNA-seq data to be analyzed.
Part One--“Know more about your genes WITHOUT reading literature”.
We will showcase how you can leverage our bioinformatics tools to dramatically reduce your time spent on literature study while stay better informed and carry out more efficient research on the gene of your interests.
Part Two--“Beyond Literature: Knowledge Discovery with Public Data Mining”.
We will showcase how you can leverage our bioinformatics tools to effectively search for pre-analyzed public datasets and extract relevant information to support/refine your research hypothesis and findings.
Please come to our workshops or just join us for the lunch session and let us know your bioinformatics needs and how can we support your research.
Registration is mandatory as the seating for this event is limited to 40 attendees.
The UPC Bioinformatics Day is funded by USC Libraries Dean’s Challenge Grant.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
