- Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
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.
