  • John Overington

    John Overington, Director of Bioinformatics at Stratified Medical, and former group leader at EMBL-EBI, presents a talk on the repurposing of drugs for novel therapeutic applications. The talk explores how computational approaches can be used to examine the properties of existing pharmaceutical compounds and looks at their application in rare, orphan, and poorly researched diseases.

    During the talk you will learn about how these drugs can be identified and new applications sought to speed up discovery and reduce development costs.

    Here you will find a collection of materials including videos of lectures from the 'EMBO Practical Course on Analysis of High-Throughput Sequencing Data' that took place at EMBL-EBI on 23-29 October 2011.

    This course was aimed at advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are applying or planning to apply high throughput sequencing technologies and bioinformatics methods in their research.

    The aim of this course was to familiarize the participants with advanced data analysis methodologies and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches.

    Between the 24th March and 5th May 2016, we will be holding a series of live Ensembl webinars which will come together to provide a complete browser course.

    This course will include an introduction to Ensembl, what kind of data Ensembl has, and how to browse and export the data - essentially providing one of our day-long training courses in 1 hour chunks across 7 weeks.

    Each live webinar will include the opportunity to ask questions, but if you miss a webinar we will make the videos available here. We will also be providing exercises so that you can practice what you have learned, and there will be opportunities for you to discuss these exercises online.

    You do not need to complete the full course; you can dip in and out to complete only the modules you are interested in.

    Want easy analysis of your own variant calls? The Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) allows you to annotate variants with the genes and regulatory features they hit and what effect they have on them. It can also tell you if your variant is known or novel, and give you more information about known variants, such as population frequencies. You can use data from the VEP to prioritise variants from GWAS and whole variant calling studies, or from smaller scale single gene sequencing.

    This webinar will guide you through using the easy web interface for the VEP - suitable for annotating small numbers of variants, and using the standalone script - suitable for fast analysis of genome-wide variant calls.
