Tutorial Details: Partek NGS & Microarray Data Analysis Workshop

Date: Tuesday, October 29, 2013, 09:00 am - 04:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter

Presented by: Xiaowen Wang, Field Application Specialist, Partek Inc.

Partek will hold a one-day workshop at the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis Campus, October 29th. Please join us to learn how to perform comprehensive analysis of your Next Generation Sequencing and Microarray data and get the most biologically relevant results using our start-to-finish Partek solution!

Morning Session (9:00am – 12:00pm, Conference Room 402 Walter Library): Upstream analysis on NGS data in Partek Flow. During this session, we will provide an overview of the functionalities of Next Generation Sequencing data analysis in Partek Flow. Partek Flow is a web-based application that has data and task manager specifically designed for NGS data analysis. Partek Flow takes raw sequencing data and uses them for QA/QC, alignment, SNP calling, gene fusion detection, and quantification & differential gene expression detection. The data smart interface guides you to build your analysis pipelines. All the resources and analysis pipelines can be shared. We will also demonstrate an RNA-Seq data analysis pipeline in Partek Flow starting from raw sequencing data to a differential expressed gene list.

Afternoon Session One (1:00pm – 2:00pm, Conference Room 402 Walter Library): Hands-on RNA-Seq data analysis in Partek Genomic Suite. Partek Genomic Suite uses aligned data files. During this session, we will start with importing .bam files, perform QA/QC, estimate gene abundance and detect differential expression, and follow with biological interpretation. Visualizing data using PCA Scatterplot, dot plot, genome browser, and heatmap will be demonstrated during this session as well.

Afternoon Session Two (2:15pm – 4:00pm, Computer Lab 585 Walter Library): Advanced Session, Open Lab, Q&A

NOTE: Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops to the tutorial.

Thank you for your interest and time. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
