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.
