The next Core Management Meeting has been scheduled; the topic this month is Value, Metrics, and ROI. Oh My!

Date: Tuesday, November 14
Time: 2:30-3:30 PM
Location: Mission Bay, Mission Hall Room 2103
Description: At our next Core Management meeting, we will take a closer look at how cores can use metrics to increase value to customers and improve operations. We will review some efforts taking place at the NIH and some cores at UCSF, link metrics to Lean thinking, and present some practical examples.

Add the meeting to your calendar!

September 26, 2017

Training will take place 10/25/17 1PM-4PM at Mission Bay campus. Registration required.

Please join us for a hands-on training workshop on Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) software. 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 likely pathways that are expressed
  • Find causal regulators and their directional effect on genes functions and diseases
  • Build 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 timepoints or samples

You will learn to explore IPA's knowledge and discovery tools that allow you to relate the most recent literature findings to your research. If you don’t currently have access to IPA, a training account will be provided. You will also learn how to join the institutional IPA license at UCSF.

Instructor:  Devendra Mistry, Ph.D., Field Applications Scientist, QIAGEN
