Course Details

  • Date: December 14th, 2012 - December 14th, 2012
  • Time: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
  • Location: Building 549, Scientific Library, 
Frederick, MD
  • Presenter(s): Cindy Sood, PhD (Solutions Specialist Elsevier)

All researchers at the NCI have unlimited access to Pathway Studio software, MedScan text mining module, and the Mammalian database.

Pathway Studio Application Areas Include:

• Disease Biology
• Disease Biomarkers
• Drug Target Identification
• Protein Functionality
• Cellular Interactions
• Biomarkers of Target Regulation
• Drug Repositioning
• Drug Target Modulation & Characterization
• Safety Biomarkers
• Cellular & Molecular Systems Biology
• Experimental Data Analysis (Gene Expression, Mass. Spec, Assay Data, etc.)

The Pathway Studio training will be presented by the Elsevier.  You will learn how to process thousands of PubMed abstracts and build pathways related to disease, biological process or any other topic of interest.  We will explain how to interpret biological networks build as the result of Medscan text-mining.  We will also show you how to navigate the database of relations and build pathways to interpret your experimental data.  You will learn: how in the matter of few clicks find the major regulators responsible for the expression pattern observed in your experiment; how to find differentially expressed pathway and Gene Ontology groups using Gene Set Enrichment analysis; how to obtain high quality pathway pictures of the result pathways for your publication.  The training will empower you to become an advanced user of Pathway Studio and significantly increase your research productivity.

NOTE: This training is also being offered on December 11th, at the NCI training facility 6116 Executive Blvd.
