Transcriptomics Data and Tools from the EBI - Cambridge University, UK
The Microarray Informatics group at the EBI is responsible for management and analysis of transcriptomic data. The group provides a set of tools for biologists and researchers to access and analyze transcriptomics data available in the public domain. This course aims to introduce biologists to these tools.
Topics included in this workshop:
- Microarray data standards and formats: MIAME/MAGE-TAB
- Ontologies: Experimental Factor Ontology
- ArrayExpress: EMBL-EBI's MIAME-compliant repository for gene expression data from microarray and transcriptomics experiments. Introduction on how to browse the database content and download the data.
- Gene Expression Atlas, a semantically enriched database of meta-analysis based summary statistics, which serves queries for condition-specific gene expression patterns.
This session will usually be offered as one of a number of short introductions to EBI Services that can be booked separately.
- Our courses are open to all who might benefit
- Booking priority is given to people from Cambridge University and Collaborating Institutes
- Individual Course fees are required only from External participants not from Collaborating Institutes
- Basic computing skills
- Graduate level in Life Sciences
- To provide a practical introduction to the Microarray database services of the EBI
