The Indiana CTSI has made available a shared license for QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA), a powerful analysis and search tool that uncovers the significance of ‘omics data and identifies new targets or candidate biomarkers within the context of biological systems. With its many features, IPA allows you to quickly understand and visualize your data.
IU, Purdue and Notre Dame researchers can purchase sub-licenses to use this product. The new licensing period is from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019.
If you’re interested in learning more, please join us at one of the free IPA training workshops listed below. These hands-on sessions are led by a QIAGEN field application scientist and will focus mainly on the biological interpretation of expression data, including RNA-seq.
- 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22, at IUPUI in IB 225 (Ruth Lilly Medical Library)*
- 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, May 23, at Purdue in LILY 3410*
- 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, at Notre Dame in Hesburgh Library Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) room 129*
Using IPA you will learn how to rapidly:
- Format and upload your data, and launch an analysis
- Identify likely pathways that are expressed
- Find causal regulators and their directional effect on gene functions and diseases
- Build pathways, make connections between entities, and overlay multiple datasets on a pathway or network
- Understand the effected biological processes
- Utilize a heat map to easily visualize trends across multiple time points or samples
*Registration is required. To attend a free training, email Carrie.Weston@Qiagen.com and provide your name, academic email address and university campus. Participants should bring their laptops.
