NIH Library Bioinformatics Class: GeneSpring

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is presenting a GeneSpring class on November 29, 10 a.m.–4:00 p.m. in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10.

Designed specifically for 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 enables users to examine expression data across data types, platforms, and organisms that map to the same biological entity. GeneSpring includes GO, GSEA/GSA, and pathway analysis with interactive databases for more than 20 model organisms. GeneSpring can create literature-derived networks, as well as co-expressed networks that can cross-talk amongst differentially-expressed curated pathways.

Class objectives:

  • Perform differential expression analysis of RNA-Seq expression data
  • Use the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) to identify significant pathways in sequencing experiments
  • Use correlation analysis and metadata framework between sequencing studies and microarray expression data to identify concordance in gene expression

For further information about the class, and to register, visit: https://nihlibrary.nih.gov/training/genespring-0. Even if the class is full, please sign up for the waitlist and plan on attending the class. When the class begins, empty seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by waitlisted students who arrive early and sign in. An effort is made to accommodate everyone.
