Sneak Peak: Gene Expression Profiling in Cancer Research: from Raw Data to Biological Significance

Join us this Wednesday, 10:00 am pacific time, for a webinar in which we present a comparative analysis of microarray and next generation DNA sequencing using data sets from skin cancer gene expression studies.


Current gene expression technologies allow biomedical researchers to examine the expression of tens of thousands of genes at once, giving researchers the opportunity to examine expression for an entire genome, where previously they could only look at a handful of genes at one time.

This presentation will provide an overview of the gene expression data analysis process with emphasis on comparison statistics, correction for multiple testing and determining the biological significance of the results. Using data drawn from the GEO data repository, gene expression in skin cancers will be examined using both Affymetrix GeneChip and Illumina GA Tag Profiling data.
