Ondex is a open source data integration platform that enables data from diverse biological data sets to be linked, integrated and visualised through graph analysis techniques. It has the ability to bring together information from structured databases and unstructured sources, such as free text, whilst also offering a friendly user-interface to visualise and analyse integrated data.
A prerequisite to data integration and analysis is the collection and pre-processing of relevant data sources. Taverna (a component of the myGrid Project) is a workflow management system that allows users to develop and run workflows by combining distributed and local analysis tools and data resources.
The course, aimed at bioinformaticians and systems biologists, will be delivered in a blended-learning manner; both with lectures and "hands-on" workshops. We will show you how to perform common tasks using Ondex,; which methods are best suited to perform them, and how to analyse the results. In addition, we will show you how to build simple data collection and analysis workflows in Taverna; and demonstrate how the two technologies complement each other to perform a complete in silico experiment. Alongside this, we will share with you a portfolio of successful projects that have used Ondex and Taverna.
