Workshop on Computational Tools for Cancer Research FEB-16
About the Workshop:
Cancer research has rapid embraced high throughput technology into its research, using various microarray, tissue array, and next generation sequencing platforms. The result has been a rapid increase in cancer data output and data types. Now more than ever, having the informatics skills and knowledge of available bioinformatics resources specific to cancer in critical.
The Molecular Modeling and Drug Design Laboratory (MMDDL) had been developed a two days workshop covering the key bioinformatics concepts and tools required to analyzed cancer genomic data sets. In the workshop, participants gained experience in genomic data visualization tools which can be applied throughout the development of the skills required to analyze canceromic data for phenotypic expression, somatic mutations, copy number variation, protein modeling and energy minimizations. The workshop was concluded with analyzing and conducting pathway analysis on the resultant cancer gene list and integration of clinical data.
