  • EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies

    4 November 2015

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embl-ebi-introduction-to-ontologies This workshop will give an introduction to the basic concepts of ontologies and how they are useful in biological applications. After a brief overview of some existing resources, we will focus on the Gene Ontology, annotations made using the Gene Ontology and tools leveraging those for biomedical discovery. 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.

  • Mining gene-disease associations and drug target validation with Open Targets

    17 October 2016

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Mining gene-disease associations and drug target validation with Open Targets https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/mining-gene-disease-associations-and-drug-target-validation-with-open-targets [Open Targets](https://www.opentargets.org/) was founded by three global leading institutions in the fields of pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics and genomics, GSK, EMBL-EBI, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, and recently joined by Biogen, the world’s oldest independent biotechnology company. We combine large-scale genomic experiments with objective statistical and computational techniques to identify and validate the causal links between targets, pathways and diseases. Cross-cutting several therapeutic areas, we generate cellular models of disease through gene editing technologies or single cell analysis. In addition to clinical samples, iPS cells and cellular organoids are resourced to provide cellular phenotyping with high physiological relevance. Open Targets integrates comprehensive datasets from a myriad of renowned public databases, such as UniProt, ChEMBL, Ensembl, NHGRI-EBI GWAS, EuropePMC, COSMIC, GTEx, among others. The data and analytical processes are developed by a set of interlinking projects. The purpose of this half-day workshop is to acquaint participants with the Open Targets project and its Target Validation interface and introduce the tools for visualisation and interpretation of gene-disease associations and target validation based on a comprehensive platform with data from various publicly available databases. By the end of this half-day workshop, users will be able to carry out effective searches of data, use the web application to visualise genes, variants, ontology, pathways (and more) in the context of human disease and therapeutics.

  • EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies

    27 January 2017

    EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embl-ebi-introduction-to-ontologies-51eb70ed-e622-4bf1-b767-54b36cb7408b 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.

    Elixir node event
    Open Targets: Integrating genetics and genomics for disease biology and translational medicine https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/open-targets-integrating-genetics-and-genomics-for-disease-biology-and-translational-medicine 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. We offer interactive and hands-on experience with Open Targets Platform and Open Targets Genetics, open source tools of integrated biological and chemical data for drug target identification and prioritisation. We cover user cases relevant to the biomedical and pharmaceutical communities and can customise the course according to specific therapeutic areas. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
