Ariadne to Provide Pathway Analysis Instruction for Affy's Gene Expression Training Program


Ariadne Genomics will instruct participants in the "Affymetrix University" training program on how to use its Pathway Studio software to assist with gene expression analysis.

Greg Fisher, Affymetrix's associate director of strategic marketing, said the firm has used Pathway Studio for a number of projects and that it "has proved to meet the needs of the students that attend our Affymetrix University courses."

Affymetrix University is a series of hands-on courses that trains researchers on microarray data analysis. The three-day Expression Analysis Data Course covers the analysis of gene expression levels using Affymetrix 3' IVT, whole-transcript, and miRNA Arrays.

Fisher said that Ariadne's "expertise in pathway analysis and biological interpretation of microarray data will be a critical component of our data analysis course work."

Pathway Studio’s workflow approach allows researchers to analyze and visualize results individually or in an integrated workflow. It lets them save individual steps and then update or modify them as new information becomes available. Furthermore, separate analyses can be combined or intersected for more complex applications and discovery.

The next Affymetrix University course is scheduled for Sept. 13-15 in Santa Clara, Calif. Participants in the course will receive 30-day licenses to use the Pathway Analysis software.
