New Online Tutorial for iHOP from OpenHelix

Comprehensive tutorial on the publicly available iHOP database enables researchers to quickly and effectively use this invaluable next-generation resource.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 10, 2009 -- OpenHelix today announced the availability of a new tutorial suite for iHOP, or Information Hyperlinked Over Proteins. iHOP is a sophisticated, next generation text-mining database that provides comprehensive up-to-date information on specific genes and proteins by automatically scanning millions of PubMed abstracts each day. iHOP provides fast, accurate, comprehensive summary information on more than tens of thousands of genes, chemical compounds and Medical Subject Headings (or MeSH) terms. iHOP will selectively present only the information on genes and proteins you want. The control over the reliability and relevance of the retrieved information always remains in the hands of the user.

iHOP contains more than 15 million sentences and 80,000 different genes from over 1500 organisms and is updated daily. iHOP converts information derived from sentences in PubMed abstracts into one navigable resource using genes and proteins as hyperlinks. Superimposing this network of information on experimental interaction data makes simultaneous analysis of new and existing knowledge possible.

The iHOP tutorial suite, available for single purchase or through a low- priced yearly subscription to all OpenHelix tutorials, contains an online, narrated, multi-media tutorial, which runs in just about any browser connected to the web, along with slides with full script, handouts and exercises. The iHop tutorial will teach users:

  • to understand the four main iHOP views
  • ways of filtering your searches to optimize results to your needs
  • how to use iHOP Gene Model to keep track of interesting sentences
  • how to download data from iHOP

With OpenHelix tutorials, researchers can quickly learn to effectively and efficiently use these resources. The scripts, handouts and other materials can also be used as a reference or for training others. To find out more about this and over 70 other tutorial suites visit the OpenHelix Catalog and OpenHelix. Or visit the OpenHelix Blog for up-to-date information on genomics and genomics resources.
