Training

QIAGEN’s Ingenuity offers online training with our product technicians and web seminars presented by notable third parties.

Data Upload and Analysis

These sessions dive deeply into data upload and analysis in QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA). You’ll see how to rapidly understand biological processes most perturbed in your dataset, or across multiple timepoints or doses using the IPA Core Analysis. You’ll also get an introduction to functional analysis, significance calculations, and how IPA can help you understand the cause and effect of gene expression changes in your experiment. For all our other pre-recorded and written training materials please consult our Customer Portal.

Data Analysis: Part 1 Data Upload (1 hour)

This session is recommended for all new IPA users.

This session focus on formatting your own data and the best practices to analyze them in IPA. Topics include:

  • Format the incoming data to be analyzed by IPA
  • Upload the data to be analyzed
  • Set filter parameters and other core setting options
  • Run analysis

Data Analysis: Part 2 Result Interpretation (1 hour)

This session is recommended for users that have a good understanding of the file format, upload and running a Core analysis or attended Part 1.

This session focus on the Core Analysis and the multiple ways of relating the molecules in your dataset to the body of information in the Knowledge Base:

  • Biological functions and diseases that are over-represented in your data, and the predicted directional effects on these functions and diseases.
  • Signaling and metabolic canonical pathways enriched in your data.
  • Predicted upstream regulators that might explain the changes observed in your data.
  • Molecular networks (algorithmically generated pathways describing potential molecular interactions in your experimental system)

Search and Explore (1 hour)

This session is recommended for all new IPA users.

Explore how IPA’s knowledge and discovery tools allow you to relate the most recent literature findings to your experimental data, create interactive and customized pathways using tools such as species/tissue highlights and complex searches, and help in hypothesis generation. For all our other pre-recorded and written training materials please consult our  Customer Portal.

Getting Started with QIAGEN’s Ingenuity® Variant Analysis

Variant Analysis combines analytical and statistical tools with manually curated content to help you rapidly identify and prioritize variants by drilling down to a small, targeted subset of compelling variants based both upon published biological evidence and your own knowledge of disease biology. We offer different training media to help you get started and to help familiarize you with the application. Our free online live events cover the basic and intermediate functionalities of the application. For all our other pre-recorded and written materials please consult our Customer Portal.

Part 1: Getting Started with QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Variant Analysis (30 min)

This session is recommended for all new Variant Analysis users.

This introduction to Variant Analysis shows you which files you need and how to upload data and run an analysis. You will also learn about the biological context and the basic functionalities of the Genetic Analysis filters which are unique to Variant Analysis and provide powerful ways to quickly identify disease-causing variants.

Part 1 re-recorded version (Jan 2014) can be access at: Variant Analysis: Getting Started and Sample Upload

Part 2: Analysis Interpretation and Advanced Functionalities (30 min)

This session is recommended for users that have a good understanding of the acceptable file formats, uploading and running a basic analysis or have attended Part 1.

In this session, you will be introduced to the pedigree and clinical annotations as well as the use of custom annotations – both chromosomal and transcript level annotations. You will also learn how to change and edit the settings of your Genetic Analysis filter to incorporate the pedigree information along with a review of the filter cascade for an analysis that reflects your particular research needs.

Part 2 pre-recorded version (Jan 2014) can be access at: Variant Analysis: Analysis and Filter Cascade Basic

Register for Part 1 & 2 using the links below. The Part 2 will start at the half hour mark if you would like to attend Part 2 only.

  • Online Web Session will Resume in November 2014.
