Attend this IAP session and learn how to use MetaCore, a bioinformatics software tool licensed by MIT Libraries. MetaCore provides a solution for using "omics" gene lists to generate and prioritize hypotheses for novel biomarkers, targets, and mechanisms of action. Learn how to work with different types of data such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and interaction data.  Use this tool to  upload, batch upload, store, share and check data properties and signal distribution; extract functional relevance by determining the most enriched processes across several ontologies; emphasize the role of expression data in your analysis; visually predict experimental results, associated disease and possible drug targets; and compare data sets and work with experiment intersections. A new feature, Key Pathway Advisor (KPA) which can be used to predict upstream regulators from differentially expressed genes and help identify key pathways that they participate in with be demoed.
