GeneSpring 13 Training Class Offered March 19

Join your NIH colleagues in a free vendor-led training that will highlight the new features in GeneSpring 13. The class is scheduled for Thursday, March 19, from 9 am to 4 pm in the NIH Library’s Training Room (Building 10, Clinical Center, near the South Entrance).

New in GeneSpring version 13 are metadata analysis and visualization tools that allow researchers to analyze phenotypic parameters such as clinical or physiological attributes of subjects alongside their gene or metabolite expression profiles.

Designed specifically for the needs of biologists, GeneSpring offers an interactive computing and visualization environment that promotes investigation and enables understanding of transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics, and proteomics data within a biological context. GeneSpring 13 is used by biologists for research and drug discovery. It analyzes data from Microarrays, qPCR, NGS, and Mass Spectrometry. The tool enables a user to examine probes across data types, array platforms, and organisms that map to the same biological entity. GeneSpring includes GO, GSEA/GSA, and Pathway analysis with interaction databases for more than 20 model organisms.


  • Identify common pathways that are of significance in gene expression, metabolite abundance, and sequencing experiments using KEGG.
  • Use Correlation Analysis and Metadata Framework between sequencing studies and microarray expression data or metabolite abundance measured by mass spectrometry.
  • Perform cross-platform investigation leading to exploratory analysis. Create visualization of sequencing and array data in the same project.

Registration for this class is no longer available.

The GeneSpring 13 class is sponsored by the NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program.
