Course Overview

This workshop will give an introduction to the functional genomics resources provided by EMBL-EBI and hands-on practical experience of searching and accessing appropriate data and information. The session will also cover data submission to ArrayExpress using Annotare, but will not cover the analysis of such data.


This workshop is for researchers working with functional genomics data, introducing them to resources for submitting and exploring functional gneomic datasets and for exploring pre-analysed datasets. No previous experience of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be an advantage.
