IPA advanced training course (in English) survey image

  • Date: 2018-10-03
    14:00 ~ 16:30
  • Speaker: Ms. Clair Tsai (Specialist, Molecular Science Center, GGA Corp.)
  • Place:Media Conference Room, Humanities and Social Science Building (3F)

With the comprehensive, manually curated content and powerful algorithms, QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis is the current global leading brand of molecular pathway analysis software in system biology. IPA has broadly been adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of articles. In the experiment result analysis and molecular search,IPA not just demonstrate the molecular regulate in a single observation, but integrate, and interpret data derived from ‘omics experiments’, such as RNA-seq, microarrays including miRNA and SNP, metabolomics, and proteomics, etc..., uncovers the significance of ‘omics data within the context of biological systems.
Moreover, data analysis and interpretation within IPA builds on the QIAGEN Knowledge Base. In response to the increased complicating types of biological effects and a more massive data quantity of omics analysis, QIAGEN has launched the ‘IPA Advanced Analytics’ module to meet the needs of the next phase of molecular pathway analysis. The capabilities of IPA Advanced Analytics includes Causal Network Analysis, BioProfiler, IsoProfiler, Relationship Export, and Phosphoproteomics Analysis, all designed to help you understand causal connections between diseases, genes, and networks of upstream regulators.
In this IPA training course, GGA Corp. will conduct the IPA Advanced Analytic Module in a multi-omics analysis tutorial and demonstrate the application examples of variant analysis and phosphoproteomic analysis, inviting all IPA users in Academia Sinica to join in this class learning more about the benefits which IPA Advanced Analytic can bring for you. Within this training course, which has the open discussion section, we would like to help you to integrate IPA Advanced Analytic Module in Multi-Omics Analysis into your interest research. We can offer discuss and help in time with the hands-on IPA manipulation and interpret your IPA output information. Not only let you know more about IPA functions, but also make IPA the best tool for your research, allowing you to achieve the comprehensive results in the shortest possible time.

Case studies sharing through CLC Microbial Genomics Module - Researches on metagenomics from human to environment (in English)

  • Date: 2018-10-26
    10:00~12:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Leif Schauser (Associate Director, Global Product Management, Biomedical Genomics)
  • Place:B1B Conference Room, IBMS
Finding on Microorganisms is more and more important in the high-throughput studies from next generation sequencing data. These studies have discovered some of the relationship between environment and microbial communities. As a result, CLC Genomic Workbench have extended the new module for studying metagenomics─CLC Microbial Genomics Module. In this section, we demonstrate CLC Microbial Genomics Module to focuses on microbiome analysis, for the white paper we just released: one from cystic fibrosis patients, and a second focused on environmental microbiology study of fungi. We now demonstrate the utility of CLC Microbial Genomics Module for studying complex microbial communities and identifying both common and distinct members of those communities across a range of microbiome samples. In addition, the underlying CLC Genomics Workbench software, on which the CLC Microbial Genomics Module extends, enabled end-to-end processing, analysis and insight into microbiome data collected for any microbial research.
