June Bioinformatics Classes at Miner

You’ll not only look smarter, you’ll be smarter after attending these classes at Miner. Brought to you by MBISS (Molecular Biology Information Support Service) – a collaboration between Miner Library and the CTSI. These classes are free but registration is required.

IPA Data Upload

This class is a shared webinar that provides information about data upload and analysis in Ingenuity System’s Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA). This session will introduce functional analysis, significance calculations, and how IPA can help you understand the cause and effect of gene expression changes. Come join your colleagues and remain after the webinar to discuss issues and form new collaborations!
