Slides, Tutorial, Video

Reactome stakeholders span the informatics, clinical and basic research communities, and present us with a broad set of user requirements, from casual browsing of online pathway information to network analysis and modeling. During the BCC2020 training session, we will introduce the Reactome graph database, web site, web services, Docker image, and downloadable data sets. We will demonstrate how Reactome is useful to bioinformaticians and data integrators who are interested in finding, organizing, and utilizing biological information to support data visualization, integration and analysis. We will address the following:
  • Different use cases for using the web portal (analysis tool, curated content, content service, download files). 
  •  What data/bioinformatics questions Reactome can help answer.
  • How to use Reactome’s Content Service and Analysis Service web interfaces and APIs.
  • How to do basic queries using Reactome’s Graph Database (Neo4J and Cypher).

  •  A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.
  •  Basic knowledge of how to navigate a system and run commands from the command line (curl, grep, etc…)
  • A robust text editor and web browser.
  • Optional: A laptop capable of running Docker. installation instructions.
