Ariadne is Chosen as the Exclusive Partner for Pathway Analysis in the Affymetrix University Gene Expression Training Program
News Jul 28, 2011
Ariadne, has announced that Affymetrix, a pioneer of the genomic revolution, has chosen Ariadne as an exclusive partner of the Affymetrix University Gene Expression Training Program.
Ariadne will provide instruction on pathway analysis during each of the three-day, hands-on training programs in North America and Europe.
Pathway Studio enables pathway analysis of the entire probe list, associating genes into like-functioned or like-associated biological properties using advanced data analysis algorithms. Pathway analysis adds a biological perspective to experimental data.
“We have worked closely with Ariadne on a number of projects and are happy to be able to extend our partnership to the Affymetrix University Gene Expression Training Program,” said Greg Fisher, Associate Director of Strategic Marketing at Affymetrix.
Fisher continued, “Ariadne’s Pathway Studio product has proved to meet the needs of the students that attend our Affymetrix University courses and their expertise in pathway analysis and biological interpretation of microarray data will be a critical component of our data analysis course work.”
Course registrants will be provided a 30-day license to use Ariadne’s Pathway Studio following training. Pathway Studio’s workflow approach allows researchers to analyze and visualize results individually or in an integrated workflow.
Each step can be saved, then updated or modified as new information becomes available. Separate analyses can be combined or intersected for advanced applications and discovery.
There are hundreds of thousands of structural variants (SVs) in the human genome that are hard to identify than single nucleotide variants. Researchers have used a full suite of genomic technologies to analyze the number of SVs in three individuals, and the results present as the most comprehensive catalog of SVS to date.READ MORE
