OSGA Webinar #26

Genome-wide Association Study Summary Statistics - Where to find them and how to use them

4/22/22 10am PDT/1pm EDT

Free Registeration Here
Summary of this webinar:
This presentation will guide attendees with how to access genome-wide association study summary statistics and showcase resources available for annotating these summary data for follow-up analyses, including gene-based analyses, eQTL, and epigenetic annotation as well as causal variable analysis. We will guide attendees through components of a GWAS summary dataset and two excellent resources - FUMA and MASSIVE - that use these summary files as inputs to generate vast amounts of annotations that can be brought forward to answer translational research questions.

Mouse Phenome Database: Resources and analysis tools for curated and integrated primary mouse phenotype and genotype data

4/8/22 10am PDT/1pm EDT

View Here
Summary of this webinar:
The Mouse Phenome Database (MPD; is a widely used resource that provides access to primary experimental data, protocols, and analysis tools for mouse phenotyping studies. Data are contributed by investigators around the world and represent a broad scope of phenotyping endpoints and disease-related characteristics in naïve mice and those exposed to drugs, environmental agents, or other treatments. MPD is engineered to facilitate interactive data exploration and quantitative analysis. It encompasses data from inbred strains and other reproducible panels, including HMDP, KOMP, Collaborative Cross (CC), CC-RIX, and founder strains, along with primary data from mapping populations, including historic mapping crosses and advanced high-diversity mouse populations such as Diversity Outbred mice. A new Study Intake Platform (SIP) for data contributors allows domain experts to submit and annotate their own data with relevant ontology terms. Data contributors also provide detailed information for protocols and animal environmental conditions to fulfill ARRIVE guidelines. Data are exposed to analysis tools within MPD and are available through APIs to other systems. We will demonstrate selected MPD tools, including GenomeMUSter (a new imputed SNP grid on 500+ strains of mice, 83+M locations) and a GWAS metanalysis tool.

Presented by:
Molly Bogue and Robyn Ball
With other senior members of the MPD team: Elissa Chesler, Vivek Philip, Dave Walton

Julia: a fast, friendly, and powerful language for data science

11/12/21 10am PDT/1pm EDT

View Here
Summary of this webinar:
Julia is a high-level dynamic programming language that is gaining popularity. The Julia language is designed for scientific computing and offers several attractive features for data science applications. In this webinar, we will make a case for why a data scientist might consider taking a serious look at Julia. We will show code examples and point the audience to further resources.

Phenogen in the Cloud

This is the new home for PhenoGen running in the cloud. As such, a large number of changes have occurred in the background that will help us maintain the site and improve performance. Please excuse some ongoing bugs as we are beta testing the site now. This is not currently the recommended version. However, we would appreciate any help testing the supported features by simply using this site as you would the previous site.

REST API Survey 2/20/2018

Please help us prioritize effort on a REST API to provide access to data on Phenogen. Take the 1 question survey below.

PhenoGen v3.4.2 3/9/2018
