This hands-on workshop introduces open access and commercial biological pathway informatics tools. First we will learn how to mine a list of differentially expressed genes associated with a disease of interest by searching the NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) using the library-licensed tool BaseSpace Correlation Engine (formerly NextBio). Then we will focus on uncovering the biology hidden behind the extracted gene list by searching protein-protein interactions and literature-curated gene/protein knowledgebases using pathway informatics software, including Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA), NIH DAVID, Enrichr, MetaCore, and Key Pathway Advisor (KPA).

Please register for the following tools: IPA, Correlation Engine, MetaCore, and KPA.
