Overview

 

Next generation sequencing techniques have led to the deciphering of thousands of bacterial genomes, and the accumulation of a wealth of information about the diversity of natural enzymatic functions. Yet accessing and mining this data remains a difficult problem.
In this course, partners from the Microme project, a collaborative European effort to improve resources for bacterial metabolism, will teach in a number of practical workshop sessions aimed at guiding the participants through the complexities of networks of metabolites and biochemical pathways within the current knowledge.

Audience

This course is aimed at biologists already working on bacterial genomes, annotation and metabolism who are embarking upon projects that aim to mine large datasets. This course requires no prior knowledge of metabolic reconstruction.

Syllabus, Tools and Resources

During this course you will learn about…
Bacterial Genomics: Ensembl Genomes, UniProt
Bacterial Metabolism: ChEBI, RhEA, UniPathway, BioCyc, KEGG

Learning Objectives

After this course you should be able to…
- How to access public bacterial genome data through interactive and programmatic interfaces with the Ensembl platform
- How to explore metabolic data in different contexts using UniProt and UniPathway web sites
- How to review genome annotation in a comparative framework using MicroScope
- How to use the power of comparative analysis to complete our knowledge of metabolic pathways and their evolutionary history
- How to perform automated metabolic reconstruction and pathway design
