Databases and Services

These courses aim to train participants in the use of specific databases, and associated tools, and on how to search, retrieve, analyse and interpret publicly available data.

The vast majority of such databases are hosted and maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute and in many cases represent reference databases (e.g. Ensembl, Uniprot) that researchers are likely to use in their daily work to retrieve crucial biological information.

Resources covered include open-source tools for nucleotide and protein sequence alignment, functional genomics, metabolomics, pathway and network analysis.
