Analysis of DNA Microarray Data

JUNE 18, 2003

8:30 AM 5:00 PM (tentative)

Room 206, Weber Building

Colorado State University Campus

Dr. Steen Knudsen

Associate Professor, Deputy Director

Center for Biological Sequence Analysis

Technical University of Denmark

As part of the Graybill Conference 2003, Dr. Steen Knudsen will conduct a one-day tutorial on the analysis of microarray data on June 18, 2003, at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.  The tutorial is intended for biologists interested in learning about current techniques for microarray data analysis and for statisticians interested in developing familiarity with this fast growing field offering exciting opportunities for creative use of statistical techniques.

Dr. Knudsen is the author of the recent book titled " A Biologist's Guide to Analysis of DNA Microarray Data, published by Wiley.  The tutorial will be based on his book and will be conducted in a classroom with computers with a limit of 40 participants. There will be opportunity for some hands-on experience and computer exercises.  The tutorial will cover the following topics:


Introduction to DNA microarray technology and methods
Normalization of acquired data
Determination of differentially expressed genes
Visualization and reduction of dimensionality by clustering and principal component analysis
Promoter analysis of differentially expressed genes
Classification using DNA microarrays
Inferring regulatory networks

For the benefit of statisticians and students of statistics who may be new to this field, a brief introduction to molecular biology will be included.

For the conference registrants, there is a nominal fee of $50 (the fee includes the book which will be distributed to all participants) for the tutorial.
