Integrated Genomics Resources For Health And Disease - Part 2


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 7 September


The REANNZ funded project, Integrated Genomics Resources for Health and Disease, will use KAREN (the Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network) to provide New Zealand's genomics researchers with the ability to store, share, and analyse large quantities of genomic data.  A major component of this project involves establishing an online database that will house both public and private microarray data, and will include tools to allow extensive bioinformatic analysis across multiple data sets, a capability which is currently out of reach of many New Zealand research groups. The goal is to provide an online environment that both simplifies and standardizes the process of analyzing data from gene expression microarray experiments, while at the same time moving the burden of data storage and integration away from individual investigators.  This talk will provide an overview of the initiative, along with examples of the meta-analysis style of data  interrogation that will be possible with this powerful new tool.
