InterMine Workshop

There will be an InterMine workshop in Cambridge, UK on November 15th-16th. You can register for both days or just attend either one.

Day One - InterMine Developers
Building an InterMine data warehouse and deploying the web application. This will use the new MineManager GUI to set up an example InterMine, load data and write a new parser to add custom data, deploy and configure the webapp including the new full text search.
Day Two (morning only) - InterMine Users
Advanced querying. A brief tour of creating custom queries, creating your own templates and using the web service API to build and run queries from Perl or Java code.

InterMine is an open source system for building biological data warehouses with a powerful web interface and query API. See FlyMine or modMine for examples. InterMine can integrate data from many common biological formats and is easy to extend to include your own data. Parsers are included to load data from Chado, Ensembl, UniProt, KEGG, PubMed, TreeFam, GFF3, FASTA, BioPax and many others.

The web application works out of the box for querying any data is easily customisable. It provides a custom query builder, template queries for creating simple 'canned queries', upload and operations on lists, graphical and statistical widgets for analysing lists of data and MyMine accounts for saving user data.
