ABSTRACT CONTENT / DETAILS:
This workshop will focus on the use of Open Science tools to support pathway analysis of experimental data to explore biological response to toxicants. It will explore WikiPathways [1], PathVisio [2], and BridgeDb [3]. These tools will be discussed as standalone tools, and we will examine approaches how the can be combined.

During the workshop you will first learn how to install and use PathVisio to draw custom pathways, how you can extend existing and upload new pathways to WikiPathways.org, and how to use BridgeDb for identifier matching. Second, you will use PathVisio to map experimental data available from the FP7 DiXA database onto WikiPathways and how to visualize the results.

The workshop is based on previous workshops given by members the Department of Bioinformatics of Maastricht University. Previous example material can be found for pathway analysis [http://projects.bigcat.unimaas.nl/ebi-roadshow/pathway-analysis/instructions/]
and for pathway drawing [http://www.wikipathways.org/index.php/Help:Tutorial].

Notes:
The abstract and exact details of the workshop content will be coordinated with Barry Hardy.
