Tutorial on Community Pathway Curation: Tools and Technologies - slides available


Prof. Sophia Ananiadou, together with Yukiko Matsuoka of the Systems Biology Institute, Japan, gave a tutorial entitled Community Pathway Curation: Tools and Technologies at the ICSB Conference, Edinburgh, on 10th October 2010.

The tutorial slides are available to download here.

Tutorial Overview

Curation is essential to creating an accurate pathway model. Modelling an extensive gene-regulatory and biochemical pathway requires extensive data and literature mining. Yet, once curated models need constant revision to be up-to-date. What is needed is a framework to facilitate tracking and an update mechanism for modelers and researchers in the community to collect the latest information, to find the evidence from literature and to contribute to the collaborated model building, sharing, comparing and curation.

The tutorial explained the general curation workflow and tools and technologies available today. Further details regarding the tutorial content are available here
