EMBL-EBI: Interactions & Pathways - IntAct & Complex Portal
Prerequisites


Description

This workshop will give an introduction to the protein interaction database IntAct and the Complex Portal service. You will also briefly learn how to visualise protein interactions using the Cytoscape application.

Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.

Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge Raven account you will need to book by linking here.

Target audience
  • This workshop is aimed at researchers who are either generating or integrating molecular interaction data in their research. This could be protein-protein interaction as well as protein-RNA, protein-DNA and protein-small molecular interactions.
  • Graduate students, Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge, Affiliated Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
  • Please be aware that these courses are only free for University of Cambridge students. All other participants will be charged a registration fee in some form. Registration fees and further details regarding the charging policy are available here.
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here
Prerequisites

No previous bioinformatics experience is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be an advantage.

Topics covered

Bioinformatics, Database search, Data retrieval

Objectives

After this course you should be able to:

  • Identify the types of data, and data formats, found in molecular interaction databases
