Genestack workshop @ PAG, San Diego

Hi everyone!

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
