We look forward to seeing you in San Diego at the 2017 Plant and Animal Genome conference!
Make sure to attend our workshop:
Applying High-Throughput Bioinformatics Technologies to Crop Research.
Tuesday, January 17, 2017
01:30 PM – 03:40 PM
Sunset – Meeting House
The workshop will be presenting the results of the partnership between Genestack and Rothamsted Research, to integrate their Ondex/KnetMiner gene network ‘omics mining tools into our platform.
These tools enable scientists to do advanced crop trait analysis using high-throughput genomics datasets. Until now they been under appreciated due to high usability and technical barriers: users were limited to domain experts with access to adequate infrastructure. By integrating them into Genestack, users now have access to a simple, streamlined process from data collection, knowledge network building, to knowledge discovery.
Ondex allows users to build genome-scale knowledge networks: networks that integrate multi-omics datasets including ontologies, homologies, and scientific literature. KnetMiner is a tool for mining networks for specific traits. It ranks genes by different types of evidence. The discoveries can be explored using powerful network analytics and visualisations.
Genestack workshop talks:
Overview of KnetMiner by Keywan Hassani-Pak and Chris Rawlings from Rothamsted Research
Improving plant breeding using KnetMiner by Philipp Bayer and Dave Edwards from the University of Western Australia
Building and exploring knowledge networks in Genestack by Kevin Dialdestoro and Misha Kapushesky from Genestack
