Gene Expression Visualization

Workshop Objective:

This is a 4-hour hands-on workshop. The morning session (10am - 12pm) introduces powerful and intuitive gene-expression data visualization tools embedded in the HSLS-licensed Partek Flow software. Learn how to generate publication quality graphics such as PCA, feature distribution and sample correlation plots, volcano plots, dot plots, scatter plots, and heatmaps.  The afternoon session (1-3pm) focuses on the open access visualization tool Cytoscape for integrating gene networks as well as GSEA and g:Profiler results by generating enrichment maps.

You are welcome to attend either or both sessions.

Target Audience:

Experimental biologists seeking to analyze RNA-Seq data generated through experiments or retrieved from a repository such as GEO. The software covered in the workshop operates through a user-friendly, point-and-click graphical user Interface, so neither programming experience nor familiarity with command line interface is required.
