Description:

Open Targets is a public-private partnership to use human genetics, genomic data and drug information for systematic identification and prioritisation of therapeutic targets. This module introduces the Open Targets partnership, its underlying projects and the bioinformatics resources for researchers studying associations of human genes with diseases.

In this 90 minute long webinar, Denise Carvalho-Silva, will focus on Open Targets Platform and Open Targets Genetics, open source tools of integrated genetic, genomic and chemical data for target-disease associations.

Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge Raven account you will need to book or register your interest by linking here.''
