About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Upcoming Partek Training Courses

Upcoming Partek Training Courses

Next Generation Sequencing using Partek Genomics Suite
Date: January 15, 2010
Time: 9:30am - 4:00pm
Location: Room 601A, Becker Medical Library

Course Description
The training will focus on analyzing next generation sequencing data in Partek GS. The RNA-seq session will cover how to use statistical tests to identify differentially expressed transcripts and alternative spliced genes, novel exons/transcripts and coding SNPs. The ChIP-seq session will specifically focus on visualization of mapped reads, peak detection, motif discovery (find both novel motif and known motif), annotate enriched regions with overlapping genes or database.

Course Objectives

  • Statistic analysis to identify differentially expressed transcripts and alternatively spliced genes
  • Data visualization in genome browser (aligned reads, peak, refseq genes, cytoband, color coded tracks of transcripts)
  • Identification and visualization of possible novel exons / transcripts
  • Peak detection and motif discovery in ChIP-seq
  • Find overlapping genes with enriched regions
  • Exon data analysis for gene expression and alternative splicing

The training will include time for you to analyze your own genomic data, so bring your data and the necessary sample information with you.
