Appropriate Genomic Data Analysis Techniques

This gem was originally posted in August 2010, however, in consideration of our post on reference gene selection posted earlier this week, I thought that now would be a good time to share this information once again. Enjoy!

We have done many posts on the importance of appropriate sample preparation and sample handling techniques in order to ensure that you get top quality, reliable results from your genomic or proteomic experiments. Past posts include:

However, proper sample handling alone is not enough to ensure accurate information. When working with very large data sets such as those involved in microarray analysis, it is imperative to ensure proper data handling and analysis. While perusing the GenOmics Facebook page from Genome Alberta , I came across a video from Dr. Laura Scott of the University of Michigan on handling and analyzing data from a genome-wide association study. In the video, Dr. Scott talks about the importance of defining your data analysis process prior to commencing your study and appropriate ways of storing the data, performing quality control analysis and viewing and storing results.
