Tutorial Details: Microarray Technology and Software Tools

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 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 users to simultaneously measure the level of activity of thousands of genes. It is becoming a routine experimental technique for life science research.

This tutorial is an overview of this technology, which includes 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
