Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB): A guided tour through neXtProt streamed

The event organized by the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) will be held on 22 September from 1 pm to 5 pm and it will be online.
neXtProt is a platform developed at SIB that helps researchers answer questions relevant to human proteins. It provides a comprehensive set of high quality, fully traceable and standardized annotations on human proteins at the genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic levels and the tools to explore these, manually or programmatically. The neXtProt search functionalities are based on SPARQL, a semantic query language for databases that is recognized as one of the key technologies of the semantic web and facilitates interoperability with other resources. Acting as the reference database for the HUPO Human Protein Project since 2013, neXtProt has a strong focus on mass spectrometry data and developed specific companion tools for the proteomics community.

Topics that will be covered, and the depth on which they will be covered will depend on the participants needs/wishes:

  • Better understand/interpret neXtProt annotations
  • Using the proteomics tools provided by neXtProt
  • Advanced data querying with SPARQL
  • Using neXtProt’s API

This course is targeted to any life scientist or bioinformatician who needs to retrieve comprehensive data on human proteins (variants, PTMs, protein-protein interactions, subcellular location, function etc). Proteomicians are particularly welcome.

Registration closes on 27 August.
