News/Pathway Tools Tutorial in London

Jump to: navigation, search

A Pathway Tools and BioCyc tutorial well be held September 22-23, 2008 at Kings College London. This tutorial is kindly hosted by the Centre for Bioinformatics at King's College London (KCBI).

Day 1 is intended to teach users of Pathway Tools databases such as BioCyc, YeastCyc, MouseCyc, and AraCyc how to make the most of these resources.

Day 2 will address creation of new Pathway/Genome Databases (PGDBs) with Pathway Tools, and how to query PGDBs programmatically.

Pathway Tools includes a unique combination of bioinformatics algorithms including a predictor of metabolic pathways, an operon predictor, and an algorithm for predicting which genes in a genome code for missing enzymes in predicted metabolic pathways ("pathway holes"). It also contains tools for painting omics data onto genome-scale visualizations of metabolic networks and regulatory networks.

The tutorial is free of charge.

For more information see the tutorial page at SRI.
