Affymetrix® University - Expression Data Analysis Course

The Affymetrix University Expression Data Analysis Course is a three-day hands-on training program outlining analytical methods for use with Affymetrix' GeneChip® Expression Arrays, including whole-transcript, 3' IVT, and miRNA arrays.

During the Affymetrix University Expression Data Analysis Course, attendees are guided through the entire analysis pipeline of an expression experiment, from initial design to final biological interpretation, using industry-leading software solutions and peer-reviewed analysis methodology. Theoretical presentations are backed with hands-on practical exercises and interactive roundtable discussions.

Affmetrix University Expression Data Analysis uses Partek® Genomics Suite™ and Ariadne Pathway Studio® Explore, Affymetrix Edition, for hands-on downstream analysis.

Partek Genomics Suite

Course registrants will receive a 90-day license to Partek Genomics Suite.

Partek Genomics Suite is a comprehensive suite of advanced statistics and interactive data visualization tools specifically designed to reliably extract biological signals from a variety of genomic data sets in a fast and memory-efficient manner. Designed for high-dimensional genomic studies containing thousands of samples, Partek GS will analyze large data sets on a personal computer.

Ariadne Pathway Studio® Explore, Affymetrix Edition

Course registrants will receive a 30-day license to Ariadne Pathway Studio® Explore, Affymetrix Edition.
Ariadne Pathway Studio Explore, Affymetrix Edition enables pathway analysis of the entire probe list, associating genes into like-functioned or like-associated biological properties using advanced data analysis algorithms. Pathway analysis adds a biological perspective to your experimental data and takes your understanding beyond clustering comparisons and heat-map visualization.
