Seminar Description

Coffee break with TRANSFAC April 9th 2024 - exploring the free geneXplain platform account software demo

In this online software demo session we will demonstrate the abilities of the geneXplain platform under its free account. Together with you we will upload gene expression data, find DEGs, and identify master regulators in the gene network. We will visualize pathways and transcription factor binding sites in the promoters of genes under study.

The event will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Alexander Kel and Neetu Tandon

They will briefly show you:

  • Analysis of transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, ChIP-seq/ATAC-seq and miRNA data.
  • Over 130 methods including machine learning, network analysis, sequence analysis, motif prediction, Galaxy methods, statistical tools, and genomic tracks processing tools.  
  • Genome browser and network and pathway visualisation.
  • More than 70 complex pipelines for drug target and biomarker analysis.

The following main questions will be in the focus of this seminar:

  • What is the free version of geneXplain platform?
  • What methods and workflows are included in the free version?
  • DEGs detection using Limma and EdgeR.
  • Heatmap, PCA and t-SNE. SVM, Regression analysis and genetic algorithm.
  • Site search analysis using TRANSFAC® Public.
  • Pathway analysis using GeneWays and Reactome.

What you will learn in this webseminar 

  • GeneXplain platform Basic – a brief overview
  • How to identify differentially expressed genes from gene expression data
  • How to apply various statistical methods on DEGs
  • How to perform site search analysis using a custom set of motifs and visualize the results in a genome browser
  • How to perform Pathway analysis

Seminar Schedule

The session was held on April 8th 2024 and was held in a format of a 1.5 hour interactive software demo given by Prof. Dr. Alexander Kel and the data analysis expert Ms. Neetu Tandon.

The Speakers

  • Alexander Kel received his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology and Genetics in 1990 and has has over 35 years of research experience in Bioinformatics
  • He studied at Novosibirsk State University, obtaining an M.S. in biology with a focus on mathematical biology in 1985
  • His work spans numerous bioinformatics branches (sequence analysis, gene recognition, promoter/enhancer analysis and prediction, prediction of RNA secondary structure, analysis of signal transduction pathways, identification of drug targets, systems biology and systems medicine)
  • He is the originator of the “fuzzy puzzle” concept for gene regulatory regions modeling
  • Developed “upstream analysis” for identifying biomarkers and drug targets in various diseases
  • Participated in over 20 national and international research projects
  • Author of more than 130 scientific publications and several book chapters on bioinformatics and systems biology
  • CEO and CSO of geneXplain GmbH, Wolfenbüttel, Germany
  • Visiting Professor at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), Dublin, Ireland
Ms. Neetu Tandon
  • After finishing her studies in Microbiology and Biotechnology at the University of Rajasthan, Ms. Neetu Tandon has been actively engaged as a bioinformatics researcher for several years, contributing to numerous projects and studies.
  • For many years Neetu was the responsible software testing manager at geneXplain, where the geneXplain platform was one of the main products in her focus.
  • Having recently become the sales and marketing representative of geneXplain, Neetu now knows a lot about what our customers want and need, and thus she is the perfect person to communicate the features of our tools to the world.


Basic knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology. No programming skills are required.
