Interactive Tutorials for IMP

IMP provides two interactive tutorials explaining the core features of our web server. There are many interactive features in IMP and some are left out of the tutorials. We encourge users to play with the visual elements throughout IMP!

  1. Querying your gene, biological process, or set of genes

    This tutorial explains how to query a single gene (e.g. BRCA2), biological process (e.g. dna damage repair), or set of genes for functional predictions.

    For example, if you study the gene BRCA2 and would like to find additional pathways it participates in, or if you study the biological process 'dna damage repair' and want to identify additional participants, or there is a small set of genes (up to 5) you would like to analyze.

  2. Saving your custom gene sets

    This tutorial explains how to save your custom gene sets for functional analysis and persistant visualization throughout IMP.

    For example, if you have a list of genes that are differentially expressed in a microarray experiment and would like to identify a unifying biological theme using a functional network. If the gene list is too small, the network can be mined for additional functionally related genes.

  3. Submitting a function prediction analysis (IMP 2.0)

    This tutorial explains how to submit a function prediction anlaysis.

    For example, if you have a long list of genes (up to 200) that are differentially expressed in a microarray experiment and would like to make genome-wide predictions of additional genes.

Video Tutorials for IMP

  1. What is an IMP network?

  2. What can IMP tell me about a gene (e.g. eve-1)?

  3. Examining a process (e.g. double strand break repair) using IMP

  4. How do my genes work together?

  5. How can I compare a process in multiple organisms with IMP?
