Venue:The Francis Crick Institute - 1 Midland Road, London, NW1 1AT, United Kingdom
Participation:First come, first served
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.
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
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.
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
