Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. As an interdisciplinary field of science, bioinformatics combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to analyze and interpret biological data.

The NIH Library provides access to many analysis tools and databases on the bioinformatics workstations. Reservations are required to use the workstations.

Session Description

Designed specifically for biologists, GeneSpring GX 14.9 offers an interactive computing and visualization environment that promotes investigation and enables understanding of transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics, and proteomics data within a biological context. GeneSpring GX 14.9 enables users to examine expression data across data types, platforms, and organisms that map to the same biological entity. GeneSpring GX 14.9 includes GO, GSEA/GSA, and pathway analysis with interactive databases for more than 20 model organisms. GeneSpring GX 14.9 allows the user to create literature-derived networks, as well as co-expressed networks that can cross-talk amongst differentially-expressed curated pathways.

Class objectives:

  • Perform differential expression analysis of RNA-Seq expression data
  • Import variant calls from a VCF file to perform SNP detection
  • Use the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) to identify significant pathways in sequencing experiments
