Purpose of this workshop is to bring together (Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures) LINCS scientists and scientists from the alcohol research community to explore how LINCS resources can facilitate identification of druggable targets and novel and/or repurposed compounds for the treatment of alcohol dependence.

Hands-on Session: Web Apps and Tools
Session Leaders: Avi Ma’ayan PhD, BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center and Aravind Subramanian PhD, LINCS Center for Transcriptomics
This session will consist of a hands on demonstration of currently available web apps and tools from the LINCS Common Fund program. Participants will learn how to apply these tools to their own research programs. Please bring your laptop computer and gene expression or other genomic data to analyze.
- Please register and create a lincscloud.org account before the workshop.
- Your genomics datasets you bring to analyze should be formatted either as (1) official gene symbols or (2) Affymetrix U133A probe IDs. Some of the web tools require a list of both up-regulated and down-regulated gene lists and some of the tools only accept gene symbols.
- Because the majority of the LINCS datasets use human cell lines, gene sets should be annotated for mammalian species.
- When you RSVP for the workshop, please indicate your area of expertise: genomics, computational or other.
- Also, if you already have experience with working with any of the LINCS tools, you are welcome to submit questions/concerns, suggestions or other feedback in advance of the workshop. You can submit your questions etc., to the workshop organizer: Matthew Reilly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
