Infectious Disease Research Using Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)

Jean-Noel Billaud, QIAGEN Bioinformatics Principal Scientist

Jean-Noel Billaud, QIAGEN Bioinformatics Principal Scientist

This week QIAGEN Bioinformatics Principal Scientist Jean-Noel Billaud, PhD, will host a live webinar on how IPA can be used to look at viral pathogenesis.  For this particular presentation, he will look at two West Nile Virus datasets that were created using different cell culture methods, one a microarray study on retinal pigment epithelial cells and the second an RNAseq on primary macrophages.

Infection by West Nile Virus is a worldwide public health concern and is the most common cause of epidemic viral encephalitis in the United States. Yet, the viral pathogenesis of this disease is not well understood. In this webinar, Dr. Billaud will look at how IPA was used to shed light on canonical pathways, biological processes, and transcription regulators involved in West Nile Virus infection.

Dr. Billaud is principal scientist for in silico research program in oncology and infectious diseases at QIAGEN. He holds a PhD in Blood Cell Biology from Paris VII, and conducted his post-doctoral work at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, CA.

This free webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at 5:00 PM–6:00 PM (CET). Visit our webinar webpage to register.
