This workshop aims to accelerate targeted use of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) mouse models in preclinical studies by providing participants with hands-on training on computational approaches for concurrent analysis of omics data from both human and mouse studies. In this workshop, we will use resources from the AD Knowledge Portal (adknowledgeportal.org), a public data repository that shares data generated by multiple collaborative research programs focused on aging, dementia, and AD.
After attending this workshop, the participants should be able to:
The course is aimed at researchers who want to incorporate existing omics data resources in their AD and related dementias (ADRD) or aging research.
When: June 15, 2023. Add to your Google Calendar.
Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (listed below).
Accessibility: We are committed to making this workshop accessible to everybody. For workshops at a physical location, the workshop organizers have checked that:
Materials will be provided in advance of the workshop and large-print handouts are available if needed by notifying the organizers in advance. If we can help making learning easier for you (e.g. sign-language interpreters, lactation facilities) please get in touch (using contact details below) and we will attempt to provide them.
Roles: To learn more about the roles at the workshop (who will be doing what), refer to our Workshop FAQ.
Who can attend?: This workshop is open to those at JAX and neighboring institutions. Prerequisite: This course requires basic R programming experience.
Everyone who participates in Carpentries activities is required to conform to the Code of Conduct. This document also outlines how to report an incident if needed.
