EMBL Heidelberg, Room 202
Introduction to Ontologies, Pathways, and Networks
Dates: 04 – 06 October 2016
Location: Seminar Room 202, Heidelberg
Requirements: laptops and enthusiasm
This course is free and open to all, including outstations.
During the workshop you will learn how to perform a range of basic computational tasks in analysis and visualisation of biological data using online tools and Cytoscape.
You will learn how to:
- Use public resources (databases such as String, pathway tools e.g. Reactome, and text mining) to explore their data
- Construct biological networks, import and integrate experimental data
- Apply basic concepts in visualisation to analyse, and interpret biological information.
- Perform enrichment and depletion tests against ontologies and pathway databases
1. Introduction to network biology
- Introduction to Cytoscape
- Loading and manipulating networks
- Integrating experimental data
- Visual Styles – how to make pretty graphics
- Automatic layouts can improve visualisations
- Using data to enhance network graphics – displaying pie-charts, heatmaps,
line charts etc. on networks
2. Visualizing data on networks
3. Filtering complex networks using experimental measurements and metadata
4. Protein/gene/transcript identifier systems such as Entrez, Ensembl, UniProt explained
1. Using web services: String, IntAct, Complex Portal, Reactome, Kegg
2. Automating the retrieval of data from public resources
1. Enrichment analysis using ontologies (GO, KEGG, Reactome, Complexes, Drugs, Diseases)
2. BYOD – bring your own data
This event is fully booked.
