News/Pathway Tools Tutorial in London
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 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.
