The Bioinformatics Core Facility of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics will organize a three-day course on the basics of (gene expression) microarray data analysis on March 30-April 1 2009, at the CIG in Lausanne. The course is open to anyone working in the field of life sciences in Switzerland.
The course will consist of theory each morning followed by exercises (practical analysis of microarray) each afternoon. People who have data to analyze are welcome to bring it along and work on it during the practicals (Please discuss this with us first so we can make sure that the course will cover the technology you are using).
We plan to cover the following topics:
- lower-level analysis,
- differentially-expressed genes,
- introduction to GSEA and other group-level analysis methods
The course is currently full; if you are interested to know if a seat becomes available, please contact Frederic Schutz <Frederic.Schutz@isb-sib.ch>.
