Gene Expression Omnibus – NIH Bioinformatics Minicourse

Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Lamar Alexander Building, Room 307
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

This 2-hour class will demonstrate how to search for an expression record in GEO, obtain differentially expressed genes, and information about their pathway enrichment. Topics to be covered include:

  • Types of databases (GEO DataSets and GEO Profiles)
  • Types of entries in GEO DataSets (Platform, Sample, Series and Dataset)
  • Searching options for GEO DataSets
  • Obtaining a differentially expressed gene list for an experiment (using analysis tools in GEO DataSet or using GEO2R)
  • Links to accessing or downloading data, profiles, and pathway enrichment

Registration is limited to 10 participants.

About the Instructor

Medha Bhagwat received her PhD in biochemistry in December 1994 from the University of Maryland at College Park. She did her postdoctoral training at NIDDK, NIH on the structure-function studies of bacteriophage T4 RNase H and its interaction with other proteins at the replication fork.

Dr. Bhagwat joined NCBI in 1998 as part of the group which builds the GenBank database. Since 2001, she has been involved in bioinformatics training that NCBI offers. She currently teaches at the NCBI Core-Bioinformatics Facility, which trains the representatives from the NIH institutes in the use of the NCBI bioinformatics tools in 9-week sessions. She is thus involved in coordinating a network of bioinformatics specialists serving the individual NIH institutes. Bhagwat also develops and teaches several mini-courses which describe the effective usage of a set of bioinformatics tools for solving a scientific problem.
