How do you improve analysis and functional interpretation of transcriptomic data? Training in the use of the FISH & CHIPS tool can help! FISH & CHIPS is a database containing public transcriptomic data related to fish species in various physiological conditions. The bioinformatic tool can be used to extract genes which would have similar expression patterns and thus could be characteristic of fish biological responses. By comparing data obtained in your experiment with data sets of microarrays or RNAseq obtained in various fish species, we can find a common transcriptional signature. Information given by samples of each experiment with a common signature is a powerful way to explore functional roles associated with these signatures. This training course presents the FISH & CHIPS tool and explains how to carry out such meta-analysis and interpret your set of genomic data.
This course will teach participants how to develop a meta-analysis of transcriptomic data and how to use the FISH & CHIPS tool to do so. The course also provides the opportunity to practice on a case study. Following this training, users should be able to develop analyses of their own data sets.
This course is designed for people who want to improve analysis and functional interpretation of their transcriptomic data obtained in fish. This includes postgraduate students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and researchers with a basic knowledge on genomic and gene expression.
