The Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Initiative (HipSci) is establishing a large catalogue of human iPSC lines, arguably the most well characterized collection to date. The HipSci portal enables researchers to choose the right cell line for their experiment, and makes HipSci's rich catalogue of assay data easy to discover and reuse. HipSci aims to ensure that all cell lines have genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and cellular phenotyping data. Data are deposited in the appropriate EMBL-EBI archives, including ENA, EGA, ArrayExpress and PRIDE databases.

This webinar will give a description of the project, the cell lines we are creating, and the assay data we are putting into the public domain.  We will explain how to 1) search and discover our available cell lines 2) obtain our cell lines for your research 3) discover and download HipSci's genomic and proteomic assay data from the EMBL-EBI archives 4) differentiate between our open-access and managed-access data sets, and 5) apply for access to the data, where necessary.

This webinar took place on 22 March 2017. The recording and slides are now available in Train online.


This course is aimed at individuals who wish to learn more about the HipSci project.  No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
