MED 256: Gene Expression Profiling in Cancer

This course will cover techniques used to query the expression of genes in tissue and how the information derived from those techniques can be used to answer questions in cancer biology. The focus will be on the transcriptome analysis (e.g. RT-qPCR, microarrays, RNA-seq, etc.) in the context of cancer biology experiments. Throughout the quarter, we will develop a pipeline to analyze high-throughput RNA-seq data. Finally we will go over differential gene expression analysis techniques and tools used to interpret lists of genes derived from such analysis.
