Partek Genomics Suite Training Workshops at WUSM in February

Partek Genomics SuiteA Field Application Scientist from Partek will be at WUSM leading two Partek Genomics Suite training workshops in February:

  • Feb. 10 - Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression with Partek Genomics Suite
  • Feb. 11 - Analyzing Copy Number Array Data with Partek Genomics Suite

Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression (workshop overview) - This workshop will focus on the analysis of microarray gene expression data. The topcis to be covered include data import, QA/QC, exploratory analysis, inferential statistics, visualization and enrichment of functional groups.

Analyzing Copy Number Array Data (workshop overview) - This workshop will focus on the analysis of genomic copy number variation. Using a combination of copy number and SNP probes, estimates of total copy number will be created, segmented, and visualized. In addition to changes in copy number magnitude, differences in allelic balance will be identified. Analysis of loss of heterozygosity will also be covered.

Both workshops will run from 9:30-4 in the computer classroom in FLTC (Room 602) with the following agenda:

  • Morning session (9:30-12) - overview of workshop topic and demo of the specific analysis workflow in Partek Genomics Suite
  • Afternoon session (1-4) - hands-on session where you can get help working with your own data or practice with data from Partek


Registration is required (Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression & Analyzing Copy Number Array Data).
