IPA is software that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research. IPA has been broadly adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles.
IPA helps you understand complex omics data at multiple levels by integrating data from a variety of experimental platforms and providing insight into the molecular and chemical interactions, cellular phenotypes, and disease processes of your system. IPA provides insight into the causes of observed gene expression changes and into the predicted downstream biological effects of those changes.
Even if you have experimental data, you can use IPA to intelligently search the Ingenuity Knowledge Base for information on genes, proteins, chemicals, drugs, and molecular relationships to build biological models or get up to speed in a relevant area of research. IPA provides the right biological context to facilitate informed decision-making, advance research project design, and generate new testable hypotheses.

Outline:

1. Introduction and Getting Started in IPA
2. Searching and Accessing the Knowledge Base
3. Building and Editing a Pathway for Publication
4. Q & A

Arrays or RNA-Seq? Choosing the right tool for your research(in Chinese)

    15:00-16:30
  • Speaker: Kevin Lin(Technical Sales Specialist, Thermo Fisher Scientific)
  • Place:A134 Agri. Tech. Building, Academia Sinica
RNA-seq has been valuable for de novo discovery—however, it has serious limitations when it comes to very deep sequencing, especially for detecting low abundance transcripts and alternative splicing events. Deep sequencing results in dramatically increased costs, time to results, and the need for bioinformatics expertise.
Here in this talk we will:
Explore fundamental differences between RNA-seq and microarrays
Introduce the next-generation of transcriptome-level solutions, Clariom™D assays, to rapidly find changes in genes, exons, and spicing events of coding and non-coding RNA
Demonstrate new function of software for RNA expression analysis

Outline

What is a protocol?
In the natural sciences, a protocol is a predefined written procedural method, used to standardize a laboratory method and ensure successful replication of results.
What is Current Protocols?
Current Protocols has been the leading source of laboratory protocols for over 25 years and now comprises more than 14,000 techniques and procedures across 17 titles.
Are Current Protocols peer-reviewed?
Yes. Current Protocols techniques are selected and reviewed in depth by editorial boards consisting of distinguished life sciences researchers, and then rigorously edited by a scientifically qualified, in-house staff. All techniques are indexed in PubMed and Scopus.
What is Currentprotocols.com?
Designed following extensive consultation with practicing researchers, currentprotocols.com provides instant, easy access to protocol abstracts, material lists, and more, while linking to full-text content hosted on Wiley Online Library. Currentprotocols.com also features tools, calculators, videos, and webinars to help researchers both in the lab and beyond the bench.

Bacterial Genome de novo assembly & annotation – using Leptospira santarosai serovar Shermani as an example (in Chinese)

  • Date: 2017-07-11
    14:00~16:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Ting Wen Chen (Assistant Research Fellow, Molecular Medicine Research Center, Chang Gung University)

The dramatic improvement in DNA sequencing technology has basically made whole-genome sequencing for any organisms possible. However, fully resolving a complete genome sequence is still challenging even for some microbial genomes which harbor large repeated sequences in their genomes. In this talk, we’d like to introduce genome assembly strategies and demonstrate how to combine next generation sequencing and 3rd generation sequencing data to solve the whole-genome sequences of Leptospira santarosai serovar Shermani and the followed annotation methodologies.
