With the increase in the volume of data across the whole spectrum of biology, more researchers are looking to integrate data of different types to inform hypotheses and biological questions. This may also include public domain data, which can provide added value to data derived through researcher’s own work. This course will provide participants with biological examples of data integration, and the challenges that researchers face. The course will focus on the use of public data resources and open access tools for enabling integrated working, with an emphasis on data visualisation.

This course is aimed at biologists who have some experience of working with at least one type of omics data, and computational biologists / bioinformaticians who wish to gain a better understanding of the biological challenges when working with integrated datasets.   No programming or command line experience is required to attend this course, but please note this course does not cover statistical approaches for data integration.
