Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Wednesday, 19 June 2019 @ 12:30

End: Wednesday, 19 June 2019 @ 15:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Target audience:
  • The course is suitable for anyone wanting to know how the InterMine API works and how accessing InterMine data programmatically could help them in their research
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

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.
Genomic and proteomic data within InterMine databases includes pathways, gene expression, interactions, sequence variants, GWAS, regulatory data and protein expression.

InterMine provides sophisticated query and visualisation tools both through a web interface and an extensive API; this course will focus on programmatic access to InterMine through its API and on running InterMine searches using Python, Perl and R scripts. 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 User Interface. More information on this event are available [ https://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-intermine here].

The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
