    PSIMEx Workshop: Interactions and Pathways

    Lausanne, 6-7 October 2011

    This workshop is specifically intended to give experimental and computational biologists training on how to optimally explore and use protein-protein interaction resources, including hands on experience on the IntAct molecular interaction database, a brief introduction to Cytoscape and on how to utilise the PSICQUIC web service to access additional data. We will also explore the Reactome pathways and use PSICQUIC to link interaction and pathway data.
    The course will include an introduction to the source databases, UniProtKB for proteins and ChEBI, the small molecule database.
