Did you know that EMBL-EBI trainers can travel to your institute to deliver short, focused workshops on the resources relevant to your researchers’ needs? Contact us to find out more

Modules we offer

We can combine our half-day and full-day modules in different ways to deliver training that best meets the needs of scientists at your institute. Browse our modules below, and take a look at our upcoming workshops for inspiration.

Half day  |  Gene expression

The module is designed for researchers interested in learning about functional genomics data, how to access, retrieve and use the data. This will involve presentations, demonstrations and practical activities to give...

Half day  |  Chemical biology

Metabolomics is the large-scale study of small molecules (metabolites), within cells, biofluids, tissues or organisms. MetaboLights is an open database repository which hosts all types of metabolomics experiments, using any...

Half day  |  Proteins

This module aims to give the scientific community hands on experience on how to access and effectively use protein data in UniProt. UniProt is the high quality, most comprehensive and most thoroughly annotated protein resource...

This module will introduce the ChEBI Ontology as a freely available database of small molecular entities. Participants will learn how to browse and search for chemical nomenclatures, structures and formula that are used in the...

Half day  |  Chemical biology

This module will show scientists how to use the medicinal chemistry literature (ChEMBL) and patent (SureChEMBL) data resources to identify bioactive molecules of relevance to their research. The resources can be searched to...

Half day  |  Chemical biology

This module is aimed at giving students and researchers in the life sciences and metabolomics communities an introduction to using the ChEBI database and ontology in identifying, naming and referencing the small molecules that...

Full day  |  DNA & RNA

This interactive module offers participants hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl and/or Ensembl Genomes genome browsers. Ensembl provides access to the human, mouse, zebrafish and other (mostly vertebrate) genomes,...

Half day  |  DNA & RNA

This interactive module offers participants hands-on experience in the use of the European Genome-Phenome Archive (EGA). The EGA provides a service for the permanent archiving and distribution of personally identifiable genetic...

Half day  |  DNA & RNA

This interactive module offers participants hands-on experience in the use of the European Variation Archive (EVA). The EVA is an open-access genetic variation data repository, currently hosting more than 80 studies describing...

Half day  |  Gene expression

This module provides hands-on experience in using Expression Atlas, a resource to find information about gene and protein expression across species and biological conditions such as different tissues, cell types, developmental...
