Course Overview

This workshop will give an introduction to the Reactome pathway database website and analysis tools, using short presentations and practical hands-on exercises. The session will also explain where to learn more, get help, and how to become involved in adding more pathway information to Reactome.



This workshop is aimed at researchers who want to learn about pathways or identify pathways relevant to a set of molecules.  No previous experience of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level knolwedge of Biology would be an advantage.

Modules and resources

During this course you will learn about:

  • The need for pathway databases such as Reactome
  • Reactome pathways diagrams
  • Navigating the Pathway browser
  • Analysing your own data with Reactome  

Learning outcomes

After this course you should be able to:

  • Navigate the Reactome Pathway browser, search pathways and understand pathway diagrams
  • Find proteins or compounds represented in Reactome
  • Extend Reactome pathways with protein-protein or protein-compound interactions from relevant databases or with your own interactions data
  • Map your own lists of genes, proteins, or compounds to Reactome pathways and identifying the pathways that are over-represented
  • Visualise pathway expression levels using your own microarray or protein dataset
