MHTP Bioinformatics seminar: "Transcription Factors identification with CiiiDER", 26 April

Wed 26 April, 2.30pm-4.30pm - Seminar room 3, level 2, TRF

Identifying the important transcription factors regulating your genes of interest can be daunting. So come along to the CiiiDER seminar and we may be able to point you in the right direction!

CiiiDER is a user-friendly tool for predicting and analysing transcription factor binding sites, designed with biologists in mind. CiiiDER can predict potential transcription factor binding sites within sequences, identify those transcription factors that are significantly enriched in co-expressed genes and remodel transcription factor motifs to reflect the predicted sites.

In this session we will first introduce you to the analysis methods used by CiiiDER and demonstrate its features. Following this, there will be a training session for people interested in getting hands-on experience using the software. 

This seminar will be presented by Dr Helen Cumming, Dr Jamie Gearing and Isaac Woodhouse from the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases, and on behalf of the MHTP Bioinformatics affinity group.
