R2 is a free, publicly accessible web-based genomics analysis and visualization platform (http://r2.amc.nl) allowing biomedical researchers, without bioinformatics training, to integrate clinical and genomics data. The R2 platform serves nearly 2.000.000 pages a year and has been cited in PubMed listed manuscripts over 700 times, including Nature and Cell.
To help researchers get started, the department of Oncogenomics is organizing a 1 day introduction workshop with hands-on training on Monday June 25th (09:30-17:00). The workshop will cover the essentials of working with mRNA data in R2 and will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to use this versatile tool.
If you are:
- Studying a specific pathway in disease
- Trying to find biomarkers in specific tissue
- Investigating the function of a specific protein
- Involved in any kind of molecular biology
Then this workshop may be of interest to you.
Every participant will receive a printed tutorial book. Coffee / tea and a simple lunch will be provided during the workshop.
The workshop is provided free of charge, however, we will have to charge 25 euro (for administration, lunch, printing costs) in case of a no show on the workshop.
