Bioinformatics Workshop: Katie Hoadley, PhD

October 30, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Register Now for this Workshop

Advancements in technology have led to a myriad of high dimensional genomic, genetic, and proteomic technologies now being applied to human tumors.  Much of these data are now in public databases. This workshop focuses on how to find and use the data (TCGA, dbGaP, GEO, EGA, cBioPortal, among others), data access requirements, and how these rich resources can be used for trainees’ own translational research. We also touch on different molecular assays, types of analyses that can be performed, unsupervised approaches to cancer classification, and data integration. We use trainee specific research questions to access databases in real-time to show data and perform initial queries and analyses. This workshop will be led by Katherine Hoadley, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics. She has over 18 years of experience in genomics, has been part of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) since 2003, and is currently PI of TCGA research efforts with a focus on RNA expression analyses and data integration.
