Bioinformatics Software: Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)

General Information

USC Libraries Bioinformatics Service is very pleased to host a one-day training event for Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) and Ingenuity Variant Analysis (IVA).

Major Topics:​

  • Biological interpretation of expression data using IPA
  • New functionalities in IPA
    • ​Isoprofiler Enhancements
    • Phosphorylation Analysis
  • ​Functional annotation of variant (VCF files) using IVA

Time: October 26th, 2017

Place: McKibben Annex 249 (MCA249), HSC

Lunch will be provided.  Registration is mandatory. 

Training Agenda

8:30am: Coffee/snacks provided by USC Libraries

9:00am – 12:00pm: IPA New User Hands-on Training

This hands-on training session will mainly focus on biological interpretation of expression data (including RNA-seq). Using IPA you will learn how to rapidly: 

  • Format, upload your data, and launch an analysis 
  • Identify enriched pathways and overlay expression data 
  • Find causal regulators and their directional effect on genes, biological processes and diseases
  • Build causal pathways, make connections between entities, and overlay multiple datasets on a pathway or network
  • Understand the effected biological processes
  • Comparison Analysis: utilize a heat map to easily visualize trends across multiple time points, treatments, samples, groups or multi-omic observations (RNA vs protein expression etc.) 

12:00pm – 1:00pm: Lunch provided by QIAGEN

1:00pm – 2:00pm: New Functionalities in IPA

  • IsoProfiler Enhancements
  • Phosphorylation Analysis
  • Analysis Match

2:00pm – 4:00pm: Ingenuity Variant Analysis (IVA) Hands-on Training

  • This hands-on session will enable you to go from a vcf to a short list of potential causal variants for a phenotype.
