aquaexcelApplications are now being accepted for the AQUAEXCEL2020 training course entitled “Training in the Use of the FISH & CHIPS Tool”. This is a free Distance Learning training course provided by INRA’s Fish Physiology and Genomic Institute (INRA LPGP).

Would you like to learn how to improve analysis and functional interpretation of transcriptomic data? Training in the use of the FISH & CHIPS tool can help! FISH & CHIPS is a database containing public transcriptomic data related to fish species in various physiological conditions. The bioinformatic tool can be used to extract genes which would have similar expression patterns and thus could be characteristic of fish biological responses. By comparing data obtained in your experiment with data sets of microarrays or RNAseq obtained in various fish species, we can find a common transcriptional signature. This training course presents the FISH & CHIPS tool and explains how to carry out such meta-analysis and interpret your set of genomic data.
The Fish & Chips Tool training course is designed for people who want to improve analysis and functional interpretation of their transcriptomic data obtained in fish. This includes postgraduate students, PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and researchers with a basic knowledge on genomic and gene expression.
