This one-day, in-person hands-on workshop offered to the BCERP 13th annual meeting attendees, will cover major concepts, methods and tools of translational bioinformatics and hands-on computer based exercises utilizing web-based bioinformatics resources – such as Georgetown Database of Cancer (G-DOC)- a unique translational research platform for connecting molecular and clinical data, the Universal Protein Resource, UniProt, and TCGA. Additional hands-on experience will be provided on systems biology level analysis of experimental multi-omics biomarkers discovery using pathway analysis tools.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from 8am-5pm at the Georgetown University Medical Center, Dahlgren Memorial Medical Library, 3900 Reservoir Rd NW # Gm7, Washington, DC 20007 (5 minute walk from the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center)
