OmicCircos: Data Visualization for Data Integration―December 9th

OmicCircos is a free tool used to generate high-quality circular plots for visualizing annotations and genomic variations, including mutation patterns, copy number variations (CNVs), expression patterns, and methylation patterns. Such data are routinely generated from microarray and next-generation sequencing data. OmicCircos can be used to explore the relationships between omics signatures and clinical features.

OmicCircos is developed at the Center for Biomedical Informatics & Information Technology (CBIIT), NCI, and is freely available through Bioconductor.

The free training will be held in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10, from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Registration is required (use the link provided below). This training will give an introduction to OmicCircos, followed by a demo and hands-on session. The hands-on exercise will use simulation data and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data. Participants will have a chance to:

  • Get familiar with OmicCircos
  • Draw basic circular plots
  • Learn how to add tracks to the circular plot
  • Visualize TCGA gene expression, CNV, and fusion protein data
  • Make an integrated image view of gene expression, CNV, and fusion protein data
  • Plot relationship/association between clinical (phenotype) and omics features

The class will be taught by NCI staff and is open to NIH (and HHS) staff. For more information about the class and to register, please go to http://nihlibrary.beta.libcal.com/event/2203734.
