Tutorial Details: General Training Using MetaCore for Signaling or Metabolic Pathway Analysis of Omics Data

Date: Monday, November 10, 2008, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Laura Brovold,

GeneGo's unique bioinformatics technology for systems biology enables complete reconstruction of mammalian cellular functionality from interaction data at the level of ligand-receptor interactions, cell signaling, and regulation and core metabolism. Whether you are working with one gene or an extensive list from high-throughput data, learn how to tweak out the associated cellular functionality with basic training using MetaCore. In this training you will learn how to upload your gene list or build the list using MetaCore search tools, exploit the functional enrichment of a dataset, and build a network to depict these functional interactions. Also learn how MetaCore allows for the comparison (1-2-3 step workflow) of several datasets to determine what biology is shared or unique to each. In this session you will also learn how to overlay and visualize expression levels of objects from the same data to help you formulate more applicable hypotheses.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of biology
