Course content: The past decade has seen a wide-spread of the microarray technology for genome-wide gene expression analysis in medical research. The use of microarray in medical science ranges from basic research to clinical applications including disease etiology, patient classification, disease diagnosis and prognosis. As a result, there has been an ever increasing demand for bio-statistical and bioinformatics analysis of the massive data produced by microarray experiments. This 4-day-course is designed to meet the booming demand from researchers, PhD students and clinicians. The compact course covers basic technique, data pre-processing, statistical analysis, prediction model building and biological pathway analysis. Students are expected to perform independent analysis on their own microarray data upon completion of the course.
