Goal: Empower Cancer Moonshot Research Labs to tackle their bioinformatic analysis challenges

Organizers
  • Martin Morgan (Roswell Park)
  • Song Liu (Roswell Park)
  • TBD for panel discussion

Prerequisites
  • Able to write R scripts for tasks such as data input, statistical summary, and plotting.
  • Interested in using R for bioinformatic analysis.

Format
  • First 1.5 hours: hands-on workshop
  • Last 30 minutes: panel discussion

This two-hour workshop is meant to empower Cancer Moonshot research labs to tackle their bioinformatic analysis challenges. For the first hour and a half, we’ll work through a hands-on workflow for single cell assay analysis. We’ll introduce data import, management, and interactive visualization using Bioconductor tools like iSEE. After seeing how to work with one assay, we’ll briefly explore approaches to integrating different assays. In the final ½ hour we’ll go beyond Bioconductor tools for single-cell analysis. We’ll assemble a panel to discuss possible strategies for data analysis challenges submitted (before the workshop) to the organizers.
