This course will give an introduction to the main bioinformatics steps for the analysis of gene expression microarrays. We will show how to analyse gene expression data deposited in Gene Expression Omnibus using R. It will include a hands-on section, where participants will perform the analysis of gene expression data with distinct subsets of immunological cells. No previous R knowledge is required.
We will base our analysis on data from ImmGen and from the paper below. We recommend attendees to read the paper before the course.
