Overview of things learned:
Technical : I learned how to Perform Normalization and Batch Correction using R. I also learned how to plot the results of these functions, in order to analyze them, in the form of RLE, NUSE, PCA, and Heatmap plots.
Tools : R, Slack, and Stem-Away forums
Soft Skills : How to communicate with people in different time zones.
Three achievement highlights:
I was able to successfully complete quality control and plot data using the affyPLM package in the form of RLE and NUSE Plots
I was able to plot results from before and after batch correction in PCA Plots in order to visualize the data
Using different forms of quality control and visualization, my team and I were able to identify possible outliers in the data set.
List of meetings attended:
- I attended all of the Monday and Tuesday team meetings.
Goals for the upcoming week:
Connect more with my team
Learn how to use R in order to do Differential Gene analysis
Detailed statement of tasks done - specifically challenges and how those challenges were overcome
- I Finished all 4 deliverables, but faced challenges while attempting to label PCA Plots
