In this webinar we will introduce the Open Targets Consortium, its projects and focus on its Platform for drug target identification and selection. Denise Carvalho-Silva will demonstrate how to browse the Open Targets Platform to visualise and interpret gene and disease associations. You will also find out how to obtain information at the gene, protein and disease levels. The Open Targets Platform is free and available to all. You will be encouraged to email us after this webinar when you start using the Platform to answer the questions in your own research.
