MetaCore training Wednesday in Kannapolis

The UNCC Bioinformatics program will hold a demonstration and training session on MetaCore at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis this Wednesday, August 17. From the announcement:

“MetaCore is a platform designed for the systems-level analysis of gene and protein expression, metabolite profiles, SAGE and other types of high-throughput molecular data. MetaCore is based on the largest manually curated database of protein interactions, metabolic reactions, multi-step pathways and their linkage to diseases, drugs, functional processes and other clinically and biologically relevant information. MetaCore enables users to upload and analyze their data, perform data-driven reconstruction of biological networks and pathways and interpret results in the framework of multiple clinical and biological ontologies.”

The session will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bioinformatics Research Center in the DHMRI building on the research campus.  To sign up for the session or for more information, contact Phyllis Beaver, pbeaver@castlecooke.com.
