1:00 – 4:00 pm
Szybalski Room (1st Floor), Carnegie (Library & Archives) Building
PROTEOME™’s powerful ontology search query system, with specialized tools for gene set analysis and pathway visualization, allows scientists working with mammalian, yeast, worm, and plant species to quickly find answers to questions relevant to their research. A specialized custom sequence annotation tool allows scientists working with other species to extend predictive functions to newly sequenced genes of otherwise uncharacterized genomes.
The training will be classroom style with hands-on demo and exercises. Examples will be provided and several laptops will be available for participants’ use, but feel free to bring your own laptop and search on your favorite genes/protein/diseases.

1:00 – 1:30 pm Overview of PROTEOME™ functional analysis solution
1:30 – 3:00 pm Hands-on demo and exercises
3:00 – 4:00 pm Applications of PROTEOME™ in NGS variant analysis
Beginning with a focus on the model system S. cerevisiae and then extending into a focus on mechanisms of human disease, participants will learn to:
Search for individual genes, diseases, and drugs by name to quickly access detailed summary reports without tedious and time consuming literature searches
- Browse for sets of genes, diseases, and drugs that share a desired set of characteristics, uncovering biologically relevant connections between seemingly disparate entities
- Map functional attributes to uploaded gene sets, filtering genes by the most important and relevant criteria
- Export annotated characteristics for a gene list
- Explore canonical pathways and build custom protein networks, overlaying known disease and drug associations
- Assign predictive functions to novel protein sequences
We will also discuss the application of PROTEOME™ data to two key challenges of NGS variant analysis, which can generate upward of 3,000,000 variants per sequenced human genome:
Mapping and identification of known, functionally relevant variations
- Identification and characterization of novel, functionally relevant variations
