EMBL-EBI: Network Analysis with Cytoscape and PSICQUIC


Description

This workshop will guide novice users through the process of analysing interaction networks – that allow biologists to map and characterise signalling pathways and to predict the function of unknown proteins. It will use practical examples in the popular open-source tool Cytoscape and the PSICQUIC client to access several protein interaction repositories at the same time to integrate protein data from different sources. Data from external sources will then be incorporated using different Cytoscape apps to perform clustering and GO enrichment analysis over our newly created networks.

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
  • The workshop is aimed to biologists or computer scientists with little or no previous knowledge of Cytoscape
  • 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
