IntAct: Molecular interactions at EMBL-EBI


This course will show you what kind of information you can find in IntAct (one of the EBI's molecular interactions databases), how to access it, the different tools that can be used to access data and some practical examples on how to search and use the database.

An undergraduate degree in a life science subject and some background knowledge in the molecular architecture of proteins would be an advantage.
