Ahmed lab is organizing GVViZ and PAS workshop at the ISCB-Latin America SoIBio BioNetMX Conference on Bioinformatics 2022, organized by the Bioinformatics Network Mexico (BioNetMX) together with the Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio) and the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 10AM – 2PM (EST).
GVViZ & PAS: Integrated bioinformatics and mobile applications for gene-disease data annotation, expression analysis, and visualization for translational research.
We propose half-day tentative schedule, which includes only couple coffee breaks. Total three sessions will be offered:
- In the first session, both scientific applications (GVViZ and PAS) will be introduced along with relevant scientific background.
- In the second session, attendees will be guided to how to download and configure GVViZ and PAS in their computing and smart phones devices. We will train them to use both bioinformatics applications and provide access to the annotated and training datasets to perform gene-disease data annotation, expression analysis, and dynamic heat-map visualization.
- In the third session, we will guide users to how to access and customize the source code of GVViZ for their personalized analysis, and future research and developments.
Tutorial handouts and learning material will be provided and made available online for the attendees. Handouts will include, step-by-step user guidelines (text, image, video), and information about source code, software configuration and settings, and relational database modelling.
Intended Audience & Level: This tutorial will be aimed to the audience of any level (e.g., beginner, experience, advanced knowledge), mainly interested in learning about automated and integrated gene-disease data annotation, expression analysis, and visualization for translational research. We will expect and equally appreciate presence of computational and non-computational scientists, bench scientists, bioinformaticians, biologist, geneticists, clinicians, and most importantly graduate and undergraduate students of life and medical sciences.
