Description

This 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 Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) using the library-licensed tool NextBio. Then we will focus on uncovering the biology hidden behind the extracted gene list by searching protein-protein interaction and literature curated gene/protein knowledge bases using pathway informatics software, including Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) and NIH DAVID.
