NIH Library Bioinformatics Classes: MetaCore

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is presenting two MetaCore classes on May 1 and 2 in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10. For more information about the classes and to register, use the links below.

MetaCore: Enabling Systems Biology Research through Pathway Analysis
May 1, 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Students will learn how to analyze gene expression from CD4+ T-cells in breast cancer patients. By examining the differences in expression between patients with high or low counts of tumor infiltrating leukocytes, we hope to hypothesize potential drug targets and biomarkers.

MetaCore: Integrated Analysis of Multi-omics Data for Pathway and Network Analysis
May 2, 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Students will be introduced to more advanced topics for multi-omic analysis. In the first part, metabolite and RNA-Seq data will be analyzed to hypothesize which processes are being disrupted in sepsis patients who are progressing towards kidney failure. In the second part, the relationships between miRNA and mRNA expression in systemic scleroderma patients will be explored.

Further information about the classes and registration is available through the links above. 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.
