The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI)
and The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG)
, in partnership with the London Regional Genomics Centre (LRGC)
hosted a one-day training session on bioinformatics tools for interpreting gene lists from 'omics' data (e.g. gene expression, protein expression, molecular interactions, large-scale genetic screens and other omics data). The session focused on annotating, providing functional information and analyzing pathways and networks from a gene list using GeneMANIA
- both of which are freely available tools on the web.
Dr. Gary Bader and Dr. Quaid Morris, both from the University of Toronto, led the session which consisted of both presentations and hands-on lab time including:
- An introduction to pathway analysis
- Pathway analysis using enrichment analysis
- Network analysis intro and hands-on lab
- Gene function prediction using GeneMANIA - including hands-on lab
