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:

(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.

MacBook Air laptops are now available for lending at the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library. Students may check out laptops for one-day - long enough to finish that paper, use for a class presentation, or watch a few movies!
Laptops run Windows or OSX and are loaded with the following software: Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Creative Suite, Java, Flash, RealPlayer, QuickTime, Silverlight. Technical details, circulation information, and the library's device lending policies can be found on the Library FAQ.
On Wednesday, March 23 from 9 - 11 am PDT, NCBI staff will present a workshop for advanced users of SRA and dbGaP who are interested in using public datasets, and:
