Overview

The new EurOPDX Research Infrastructure (RI), funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme, aims to improve cancer drug development success rates through the enablement of collaborative cancer research using patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models. In particular, we are developing efficient and user-friendly IT tools to optimise access to, and data searching of the collection of PDX models and their clinical, molecular and pharmacological annotations.

Following a first webinar in October 2019 introducing the new EurOPDX Data Portal, we will present the latest data and functionalities added to the repository, and associated IT tools to browse molecular data associated with the models: the EurOPDX instance of the well-known cBioPortal, and the GenomeCruzer for 3D interrogation of data.

The webinar will in particular support the last applicants to our PDX access grant programme (last deadline on 18th September 2020, https://www.europdx.eu/europdxri-ta).

Audience

This webinar is for individuals who are working with patient-derived xenograft models in the context of cancer drug discovery. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required but an undergraduate-level knowledge of biology is recommended.
