Specialized software can be a challenge at the best of times, and without some solid information on how to navigate it, it can be impenetrable. So much power hides in menus and dialog boxes, and the constant fear of damaging one’s hard-won data makes trial-and-error exploration tricky. It can be hard to learn how to truly take advantage of the capabilities of something like the Applied Biosystems GeneMapper ID-X Software. But Peterjon and Nick are here to help.
On this episode of Uninhibited, Nick is in the middle of analyzing his data and is getting very frustrated when Peterjon arrives to save the day. Nick has quite the learning experience as Peterjon goes through a list of power-user tips and tricks to take his data analysis to the next level, filtered through the antics of the software “upgrade” called PeterGene. Learn how to broaden your horizons with clever monitor use, take advantage of hidden sorting tools, search and destroy off-ladder peaks, remove bias using technical review protocols, and print to enhanced PDFs like the power user you know you can be in Uninhibited episode 6.
