Web seminar on transcriptomic analyses of in vitro flavivirus- or coronavirus-infected cell lines

The emergence of global viral infections reminds us of the significant public health issues brought about by these pathogens. In the last 30 years, new viral threats have arisen across the world, as exemplified by the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Among these viral agents are two flaviviruses, West Nile Virus and Dengue Virus, and two coronaviruses, SARS-COV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. These viruses have had extensive impacts on human populations, and in many cases, have caused severe symptoms and even death. Therefore, understanding the immune response to these viruses is critical. We have analyzed the transcriptomes of cell lines infected by these viruses, to highlight differences in the short-term (<36 hours) impact on host gene responses.

In this web seminar, you will learn how to:

  • Analyze the data from FASTQ files to produce differential expression profiles using QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench and Genomics Cloud Engine
  • Identify regulated canonical pathways or functions in viral infection datasets
  • Generate hypotheses about novel regulatory networks that suggest drivers of the expression changes observed in the infections
  • Visualize valuable information regarding a gene of interest in other contexts (e.g., disease or expression)
  • Gain additional insights about single-cell biology by comparing these viral infection datasets in QIAGEN IPA to over 65,000 other public datasets, which have been curated and processed in QIAGEN OmicSoft Suite
