  • GenomeStudio: Performing CNV Analysis Using cnvPartition
    After completing this course you will understand the basis for cnvPartition's calculation of copy number, be able to install the Illumina cnvPartition plug-in software, carry out a CNV analysis on a GenomeStudio genotyping project using cnvPartition, and visualize and report the results of CNV analysis using Illumina GenomeViewer.

  • Evaluating Infinium Genotyping Assay Controls

    Recorded Webinar (October 2015) | This webinar is targeted to users of standard Infinium products and custom iSelect BeadChips interested in the basics of assessing data quality in GenomeStudio. We will demonstrate how to use the GenomeStudio Controls Dashboard for effective assay QC and troubleshooting of Infinium genotyping data. The webinar will cover the different types of controls used in the Infinium genotyping assay, where in the assay workflow they come into play, and what the expected outcome is for each of the controls. These concepts will be applied in a live troubleshooting demo in GenomeStudio. A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation.

  • GenomeStudio Genotyping: Creating Custom Cluster Files for Infinium Arrays

    Recorded Webinar (October 2016) | Clustering using your own samples is necessary for custom array content and will produce the most accurate data for any project, especially for atypical samples such as FFPE samples. This webinar is targeted at new and intermediate users with a basic knowledge of working with Genotyping Data in GenomeStudio and will go over the following topics: Cluster file basics, when to use a custom cluster file, how to create a custom cluster file, and how to filter and manually edit to optimize the cluster file.

  • GenomeStudio Genotyping: Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (June 2018) | This webinar is targeted for new users and introduces the basics of getting started with Infinium Genotyping analysis in GenomeStudio. The following topics are covered: Introduction to Infinium Genotyping Analysis concepts, downloading and Installing GenomeStudio, and GenomeStudio Analysis Workflows.

  • GenomeStudio Methylation Module: Normalization and Differential Analysis of HumanMethylation450 Data

    Recorded Webinar (February 2015) | This webinar reviews the processes in GenomeStudio for data normalization and differential methylation analysis. We analyze the algorithms used in the controls normalization, options for differential methylation, options for third party software, and include a live GenomeStudio demonstration.  As preparation for this course, we encourage you to download and view the following pre-recorded webinar: “Infinium Methylation: Introduction to Analysis” prior to attending.  

  • GenomeStudio: Advanced Analysis Tools

    Recorded Webinar (September 2015) | This webinar will demonstrate the use of some available tools and techniques in the GenomeStudio Genotyping, Methylation, and Expression modules, including heritability and reproducibility analysis, concordance tool, heat map, dendrogram, histogram/frequency plots, image viewing, and scatter plot tools. A Question and Answer period will follow. 



  • Infinium Assay: CNV Analysis Using GenomeStudio or BlueFuse Multi Software

    Recorded Webinar (February 2018) | llumina Technical Support invites you to join us for a presentation on Infinium Copy Number Variations (CNV) analysis using GenomeStudio and BlueFuse Multi software. CNVs are genomic alterations that result in an abnormal number of copies of one or more genes and can contribute to diseases. This webinar is targeted at beginning users of the Infinium assay who are planning to analyze the data for CNVs. The webinar will cover the following topics: how Infinium genotyping data is converted to copy number analysis, a demonstration showing how GenomeStudio and the plugin software cnvPartition generate CNV detection analysis, a demonstration of BlueFuse Multi for CNV detection, and the effects of mosaicism on the data.

  • Infinium Methylation: Introduction to Analysis

    Recorded Webinar (August 2018) | The Illumina Infinium assay has been adapted for analysis of genome-wide methylation. This webinar is targeted to new users of the Infinium Methylation assay. We will review the following topics: How the Infinium assay works, and how it is applied to methylation analysis, the bisulfite conversion reaction (how it works and the consequences of the treatment on DNA), how to create a GenomeStudio Methylation analysis project, and how to use the GenomeStudio Methylation module controls dashboard and sample  data to assess the performance of the assay.
