Description: This workshop will introduce open-source tools for creating, representing and analysing molecular interaction data. Practical sessions will explore the EMBL-EBI IntAct database and use Cytoscape visualise protein interactions. Further information for this session is available here.

This session is one of a series of short introductions to EBI Services, run together, but bookable separately (see Related Courses section below).
