Dear all, we have a limited number of spots left for our course: "Gene set enrichment and pathway analysis in R", which will be held in Berlin from the 12th to the 16th of March 2018. Our instructor is Dr. January Weiner from the Max Plank Institut (Germany).
This course offers computational techniques that go beyond a simple technical or statistical analysis. It covers techniques for the analysis of gene set enrichments, pathway analysis, gene ontologies, functional analysis of metabolomic profiling and making use of correlations and coexpression networks. A prominent part of the course will be devoted to data visualization and visual data exploration.
The students will gain the ability to independently process and analyse HT data sets, select the appropriate tools, functionally interpret the results as well as learn the paradigms of computational biology and statistics which will allow them to efficiently communicate with computational biologists.
In this course, each student will receive a set of gene expression profiles for a different organism, and during the course they will use these to generate species-specific gene expression modules and test their utility. If we are successfull, we will attempt a joint publication.
