Resources and Training for miRNA Function Studies Workshop Scheduled

The Norris Medical Library Bioinformatics Service Program will offer a 2.5-hour training workshop entitled “Essential Resources for miRNA Function Studies”.

 Workshop Overview

In addition to surveying an array of best-of-breed miRNA functional study databases and tools, “Essential Resources for miRNA Function Studies” will provide side-by-side comparisons of methodology and usability of the most popular tools.  Through question-led presentation and live demos, users will identify bioinformatics tools relevant to their miRNA research and learn how to use them.

Come to the workshop if you have questions about:

  •  How to get basic sequence/annotation information for miRNAs?
  •  How to find out the known/potential mRNA targets for miRNAs?
  • How to find out the biological functions miRNAs may contribute to?
  • How to find out potential miRNAs related to a specific research topic (diseases, functions, biological processes, pathways, etc.)?
  • How to determine differentially expressed miRNAs from high-throughput experiments?
  • How to integrate miRNA expression with mRNA expression data?

Time and Location

The workshop will be offered on two dates:

Tuesday, January 18, 2011:  1 – 3:30 PM

Monday, January 31, 2011:  1 – 3:30 PM

Location: Norris Medical Library Computer Classroom (2nd floor, RM204)

Pre-registration is required and is offered on a first-come, first served basis until each class is full (20 persons, maximum).
