Tutorial Details: Microarray Technology and Software Tools

Date: Tuesday, February 19, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Microarray is a powerful technology for biological exploration which enables researchers to simultaneously measure the level of activity of thousands of genes. It is becoming a routine experimental technique for life science research.

This tutorial will present an overview of this technology including different microarray platforms, array design, data acquisition, data normalization, data analysis, and gene list interpretation. We will also introduce and compare several microarray software tools that MSI hosts.

Prerequisites: Basic biology
