NIH Library Bioinformatics Class: GeneSpring GX

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is presenting a GeneSpring GX class on August 29, 9:30 a.m.– 4:00 p.m. in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10. 

Designed specifically for biologists, GeneSpring GX 14.9 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 GX 14.9 enables users to examine expression data across data types, platforms, and organisms that map to the same biological entity. GeneSpring GX 14.9 includes GO, GSEA/GSA, and pathway analysis with interactive databases for more than 20 model organisms. GeneSpring GX 14.9 allows the user to 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
  • Import variant calls from a VCF file to perform SNP detection
  • Use the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) to identify significant pathways in sequencing experiments

Further information about the class and registration is available at https://www.nihlibrary.nih.gov/training/genespring-gx. 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.

Sign language interpreters and other reasonable accommodations can be provided. If you require such accommodations, please contact the NIH Library Information Desk at 301-496-1080 five business days in advance. For TDD users/callers, please call the above number through the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339.
