Description


This workshop will introduce the participants to the concept of ‘gene sets’ in the information derived from genomic, transcriptomic or proteomic experiments. It will explain the principles of gene set enrichment with an emphasis on gene set over-representation analysis. There will be practical examples of the interpretation of gene set analysis results through visualization and an introduction to the software tools used.

Workshop Learning Objectives:
1. To understand the concept of gene set

2. To understand the principle of gene set enrichment analysis

3.To understand the principle of gene set over-representation analysis

4.To interpret the gene set analysis results through visualization

5.To familiarize tools for gene set analysis and visualization
