EMBL-EBI: Interactions & Pathways
Prerequisites

Tue 13 Mar 2018

Description

This workshop is aimed at giving life scientists training on how to explore and use protein interaction and pathway bioinformatics resources. This course looks at the data repositories, resources and tools available and shows attendees how to both find information on a single molecule and how to build high-quality networks to enable network analysis.

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.
