InterMine is a freely available data integration and analysis system that has been used to create a suite of databases for the analysis of large and complex biological data sets.
InterMine-based data analysis platforms are available for many organisms including mouse, rat, budding yeast, plants, nematodes, fly, zebrafish and more recently human. See here for a comprehensive list of InterMine databases.
The InterMine web interface offers sophisticated query and visualisation tools, as well as comprehensive web services for bioinformaticians. Genomic and proteomic data within InterMine databases includes pathways, gene expression, interactions, sequence variants, GWAS, regulatory data and protein expression.
This course will focus on the InterMine web interface and will introduce participants to all aspects of the user interface, starting with some simple exercises and building up to more complex analysis encompassing several analysis tools and comparative analysis across organisms. The exercises will mainly use the fly, human and mouse databases, but the course is applicable to anyone working with data for which an InterMine database is available.
This event is organised alongside a half day course on Biological data analysis using the InterMine API. More information on this event are available here.
The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
