New and Updated Online Tutorials for PID, BiologicalNetworks, and Cytoscape
Date:10/21/2009

Comprehensive tutorials on the publicly available PID, Biological Networks, and Cytoscape databases enable researchers to quickly and effectively use these invaluable resources.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 31, 2009 -- OpenHelix today announced the availability of an updated tutorial suite on Pathway Interaction Database (PID), and new tutorials on BiologicalNetworks, and Cytoscape. PID or Pathway Interaction Database is a public resource from the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Nature Publishing Group (NPG) for the cancer research community and other scientists signaling pathways in human cells. BiologicalNetworks is a software platform that was created to both analyze and visualize molecular interaction networks, and permits analysis of complex molecular interactions at the systems level. Cytoscape is an open-source software platform used for visualization and analysis of molecular interaction and network data. These three tutorials in conjunction with OpenHelix tutorials on IntAct, MINT, STRING and others, give the user an excellent set of training resources to assist in their pathways and interaction research.

The tutorial suites, available for single purchase or through a low-priced annual subscription to all OpenHelix tutorials, contain an online, narrated, multimedia tutorial, which runs in just about any browser connected to the web, along with slides with full script, handouts and exercises. These tutorials will teach users:

PID

 
  • to search pre-defined signaling pathways
  • to search for biomolecules and processes
  • to search for connections between molecules
  • to overlay lists of molecules onto preexisting pathways or dynamically create new network maps using molecule lists

BiologicalNetworks
 
  • to use BiologicalNetworks' Graphical User Interface
  • to explore curated pathways
  • to create your own pathway diagrams
  • to load and visualize microarray data

Cytoscape
 
  • to navigate and use the graphical user interface
  • to import network data from different sources
  • to create a network layout and import attributes for your network
  • to modify visual properties of your network
  • to find and load plugins to add functionality to your network analysis

With the 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 these 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.
