Research Skills Webinars:
Lab in your living room series
In response to the changing needs of our members during the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar series aims to support PhD, post-doctoral and early career researchers, while access to laboratories is limited.
This collection of presentations on advanced techniques and analysis can be applied to existing and publicly available data sets and will encompass techniques and analyses ranging from whole-genome CRISPR-Cas9 screens to analysing data using 'R'. Outlining the methodology needed to design, run and analyse data, the series is an opportunity for members across the society and their research groups to learn and develop new or existing skill sets which will benefit their current and future research.
Webinar 2 - Thursday 4 June at 2pm BST
Publicly available data sources, a practical example
Dr Fabio Sanna
University of Oxford
This webinar will cover:
“I have seen a very cool paper; can I access the data to address a different scientific question?”.
Using practical examples of how to access and analyse micro-array data from publicly available data sources, you will see that we can still address different scientific questions and generate publishable figures from our living rooms.
About the presenter
Dr Sanna is a molecular biologist, working as Senior Postdoctoral Research Scientist at the University of Oxford, with both academic and industry experience. He is currently interested in the relationship between circadian rhythm, inflammation and liver metabolism. By using in vitro models, such as 3D cell culture and molecular biology techniques like ChIPseq and RNAseq, his research focuses on the role of a wide range of molecules serving as a link to mediate temporal distribution of metabolic processes.
