This course is targeted to students in biology or biochemistry who are interested in the DNA chips and microarrays technologies. The aim of this course is to familiarize graduate students with the DNA microarray technology and with the analysis of gene expression data (including a tutorial on R: a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics).
We think that this course is an important part of the training of every student in biology or biochemistry.
- To ensure familiarity with the different microarray techniques and their everyday use in a biological laboratory setting.
- To acquaint the students with the widely used "R" language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
- To present some of the important low level analysis (Normalization, quality control, etc.).
- To provide a sound introduction to a good experimental design.
The course was held from September 4 to 8, 2006 and
