Is it right for me?
- This hands on course in plant bioinformatics is ideal for bioinformaticians and biological researchers working on plants who are looking to utilise bioinformatics tools and databases in their research.
- Participants should have a degree in a biological discipline and be working with plant data. No previous training in bioinformatics is required.
What will I learn?
- Understanding plant genome data and genome sequencing
- Principles of sequence searching tools
- How to detect Orthologues and Paralogues
- How to interpret plant microarray data
- Principles of proteomics data analysis and functional annotation
What will it cover?
- Browsing plant genome data using Ensembl
- Sequence searching tools and their effective use
- Analysis of microarray data using ArrayExpress and the Gene Expression Atlas
- Analysis of proteomics data and datasets in PRIDE
- Protein function prediction and annotation using the gene ontology and InterPro
- Accessing plant reaction and pathway data using Arabidopsis Reactome
- Real life use cases.
