An introductory course to GeneChip®Exon 1.0 ST &
NGS microRNA data
Nizza 52, Torino, Italy, 23-25 February 2011)
platform changes the conventional view of transcript analysis since it
allows the evaluation of the expression level of a transcript querying
each exon component of the transcript.
with a guest
speaker from Affymetrix®
and it is suitable for biologists who are new to exon arrays
technology. Additionally, if you have analyzed gene expression data
from Affymetrix GeneChip® IVT Arrays and would now like to do
projects using GeneChip® Exon Arrays, then this workshop will
enable you to perform data analysis at both the gene level and exon
The course will also cover some basic analysi of next generation
sequencing data for quantitative evaluation of microRNA expression as
well as the detection of putative microRNA target taking advantage of
the availability of gene-level transcription profiles.
The course is based on the use of Affymetrix®
and Bioconductor open-source
software. However, R coding
skill is not required since all the analyses are done using oneChannelGUI,
tools, designed for life
scientists who are not familiar with R language.
