This is a course on bioinformatics resources taught by the developers of the resources. Bgee is a curated database of gene expression in animals, including model species such as human, mouse or drosophila, and others such as primates or fishes. These data are available through a web interface and an R package. Bgee also includes tools which use these data, such as TopAnat or Expression Comparison, and allow integration with users own data.
In this course, we will present the curated and pre-analysed gene expression data in Bgee. We will also make use of the Bgee companion tools, Bgee’s online functionalities, and Bgee R packages to retrieve data and integrate them into one’s own workflow (e.g. RNA-seq analysis R script).
This course is target to any life scientists who would need to retrieve gene expression information or obtain expression-based knowledge on genes of interest.
After the course, participants should be able to:
Basic knowledge of R is required for some exercises.
