This workshop will introduce students to EMBL-EBI, the databases and services it offers, and basic concepts in bioinformatics that will be of use to their disease related research work.

It will explain the role of the EMBL-EBI in curating and sharing biological data with scientists around the world, and introduce concepts for locating relevant data and information of interest.

Sessions with trainers from Ensembl, ArrayExpress and the GWAS catalog will introduce practical skills in browsing genes and variation in a genomic context, in exploring SNP-trait associations and will show how further understanding can be gained on the location and level of gene expression across the body.



This workshop is aimed at students on the Rare Diseases and Experimental Medicine MPhil courses at the University of Cambridge.  Students from the wider clinical sciences group are also able to attend subject to  space being available.
