Technical area: Learned to do Gene Ontology, Kegg, and WikiPathways analysis, as well as gene enrichment with Metascape.
Tools: Metascape, String, and R packages relevant to the analysis, like topGO, org.HS.eg.db, and clusterProfiler.
Soft Skills: Learned to make a better elevator pitch and how to better format my resume.
- Completed the python exercises and, in doing so, greatly improved my abilities to code and, specifically, to create plots in python
- Completed the deliverables for week 5
- Worked alongside group 3 to present the deliverables for week 4
7/1 GitHub Webinar, 7/1 Group 1 and 3 Presentation Meeting, 7/2 Gene Team Meeting, 7/2 Gene Team Happy Hour, 7/6 Gene Team Meeting with Mentors, 7/7 Technical Training with Mentors, 7/8 Group 1 Meeting, 7/8 Gene Team Meeting, 7/8 New and Old Leads Meeting
Goals for upcoming week:
Work with team 7 to create a presentation about the week 5 deliverables and have a productive session of office hours.
Successfully conducted Gene Ontology, Kegg, and WikiPathways analysis created plots and csv files of the produced. I had issues with the GSEA function, which I resolved through collaborating with the rest of my group, who were having similar issues. Successfully used Metascape and STRING websites for gene and network analysis. Completed the second set of Python exercises and collaborated with group 3 to create and give a presentation on gene annotation and the week 4 deliverables.
