STRING exercises

Hands-on exercises using the STRING, STITCH, and DISEASES databases through their respective web interfaces. The exercises will teach you how to:

  • retrieve a STRING network for a protein of interest
  • interpret the different visual representations
  • inspect the evidence behind an interaction
  • retrieve a STITCH network for chemical compound of interest
  • use DISEASES to find proteins associated with a disease of interest

Scientific topics: Protein interactions, Molecular interactions, pathways and networks, Bioinformatics
