GeneSpring 13 Training Offered June 29

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program​ is presenting a GeneSpring 13 training class on June 29. This free training will be held in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Registration is required (use the link provided below).

Designed specifically for the needs of biologists, GeneSpring offers an interactive visualization and computing environment that promotes investigation and enables understanding of transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics, and proteomics data within a biological context. GeneSpring 13 is a data visualization and statistical analysis tool used by biologists for research and drug discovery. It analyses 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 over 20 model organisms.

This class will highlight new features in GeneSpring 13. New in GeneSpring 13, metadata analysis and visualization tools will allow researchers to analyze phenotypic parameters such as clinical or physiological attributes of the subjects alongside their gene or metabolite expression profiles.


  • Identify common pathways that are of significance in gene expression, metabolite abundance, and sequencing experiments using KEGG. 
  • Create Correlation Analysis and Metadata Framework between sequencing studies and microarray expression data or metabolite abundance measured using mass spectrometry.

The class will be taught by GeneSpring staff and is open to NIH staff.
