Module 1: Introduction to Oncomine
Investigate a gene’s over-expression in a cancer type using the Oncomine 4 interface, Filter Tree and other useful features.
By the end of the module you will understand how to:
Search for a single gene or multiple genes
Add filters to narrow your search results
Become familiar with the most common filters in the Filter Tree
Perform a meta-analysis across multiple independent analyses
Module 2: Target Identification and Validation
Use the knowledge acquired in the previous training module to discover novel targets and validate a gene’s over-expression in cancer.
Using the Filter Tree, Gene Summary and Associated Concepts, you will learn how to:
Identify gene targets
Perform a meta-analysis to validate your finding
Validate personal findings
Discover important biological associations
Module 3: Pathway and Drug Discovery
The final module will guide you through an in depth look at a drug sensitivity signature.
At the end of the workflows you will be confident in:
Validating perturbation signatures
Exporting gene lists
Uploading to My Concepts, your own unique Concept
Identifying biomarkers that define a subset of drug sensitive cancers
