This workshop will introduce you to the rich ecosystem of genomic data repositories and analysis tools available for discovery and utilization of open genomic data. We will focus on a handful of bioinformatics tools that are accessible to researchers without programming expertise. We will also review current publisher and funder data sharing policies to understand “open data” as it relates to genomic research.
We will spend the last 45 minutes of the workshop on a hands-on gene expression reanalysis use case that shows you how to:
- Search the Gene Expression Omnibus for datasets of interest
- Use GEO2R to analyze gene expression data and generate a list of differentially expressed genes
- Use pathway and network tools to interpret that gene list in a biological context
Date: Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Time: 12 – 1:30 pm; this is a hands-on workshop, so please bring your own laptop

(Space is limited, and registered and waitlisted attendees will have priority.)
Presenter: Dr. Megan Laurance is the Research Informationist at the UCSF Library where she uses her expertise in genomic data analysis and knowledge management to help researchers get up to speed on various bioinformatics methods, databases and software, and integrate those tools into their own data analysis and interpretation workflows. Prior to becoming the Research Informationist at UCSF in 2013, Dr. Laurance spent 12 years at a genomic software and database company, and spent 10 years at the bench as a researcher studying various topics including transplantation biology, transcription, and cancer.
