Public Lecture: Large Scale Bioinformatics Data Integration and Data Mining of Resources for Improved Target Identification and Validation in Various Therapeutic Areas.

July 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Abstract

Open Targets is a public-private partnership made up of four global leading institutions in the fields of pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics and genomics, namely GSK, EMBL-EBI, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, and Biogen. We combine large-scale genomic experiments to identify and validate the causal links between targets, pathways and diseases. We have recently developed the Target Validation platform, a web application for data integration and visualisation, which supports both target- and disease-centric workflows.
