Bioinformatics: Ensembl API Workshop
Prerequisites

Wed 3 Apr - Fri 5 Apr 2013

Description

This workshop is aimed at researchers and developers interested in exploring Ensembl beyond the website. The workshop covers the core, compara, variation and functional genomics (regulation) databases and APIs. Each database schema and API design will be presented in association with practical sessions in which the participants will write their own Perl scripts. Further information concerning course content is available. A course timetable is also available.

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
Prerequisites
  • A good grasp of programming concepts
  • Experience in coding in PERL
  • Familiarity with basic Molecular Biology and Genetics
  • Familiarity with the Ensembl would be advantageous
