Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Friday, 27 January 2017 @ 14:00

End: Friday, 27 January 2017 @ 17:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Scientific topic: Bioinformatics

Target audience:
  • This workshop is aimed at researchers who wish to understand why data standards are important and how they can be used in practice
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

This workshop will give an introduction to the basic concepts of ontologies and how they are useful in biological applications. The workshop will have three sections:
* A brief, practical introduction to ontologies and semantics
* Focus on Gene Ontology (GO), annotations made using GO and tools leveraging those annotations for biomedical discovery.
* A practical exercise in annotating data with ontologies using EBI tools. A standard annotation exercise will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring examples of their own data for annotation, preferably in spreadsheet form.

Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.
