11:00 am – 12:00 pm               Introduction to Partek Genomics Suite

This will be an overview of the software, including statistics, workflows and other analytical modules relevant for gene expression analysis.

12:00 – 1:00 pm                        LUNCH BREAK

1:00 – 4:00 pm                         Comprehensive hands-on training on PGS

This session will be covering end-to-end analysis of gene expression data (example set will be provided). The complete gene expression analysis workflow will be followed that includes QA/QC of the data, differential expression detection, and biological interpretation using Partek Pathway. The presenter will also show participants how to perform batch effect removal, integration with other relevant data, and generating applicable visuals for the data.
