Integrative Genomic Analysis with GenePattern
GenePattern enables researchers at all levels of computational expertise to use hundreds of tools for the analysis of gene expression, sequence variation, proteomics, and more, through an intuitive interface that requires no coding.

GenePattern makes reproducible research easy: analyses can be rerun at any time with the same inputs; every version of each tool is tracked, so that a result can be reproduced even if the code that produced it changes in the future; and researchers can chain analyses together to encapsulate and share their research as reproducible workflows.

A new GenePattern Notebook ( environment based on the popular Jupyter Notebook system, further allows users to interleave text, graphics, and analyses in unified "research narratives" that can be shared and published.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to:
  • Analyze and visualize gene expression (including RNA-seq) and other genomic data
  • Identify GenePattern analyses relevant to their scientific objectives   
  • Ensure that their analyses are reproducible
  • Create and publish research narratives that serve as a live, executable, sharable representation of a study
