Upcoming BioCyc Workshops at the Biomedical Library

BioCyc is a collection of Pathway Genome Databases (PGDBs) containing genomic and metabolic pathway data on many organisms. BioCyc databases are comprised of curated data from publications enabling researchers to easily integrate these data into their research. Moreover, it provides tools for database searching and visualization, omics data analysis, and comparative analysis. We will be offering the BioCyc workshop at the Biomedical Library in a two-part series. It is preferred to attend the workshops in a sequence as they are built upon each other. However, you are welcome to skip our first workshop and attend the second one in the series if you are already familiar with BioCyc.

Introduction to BioCyc (Workshop #1)

Come learn to work with BioCyc: a collection of Pathway Genome Databases (PGDBs) that provides information on genomes and metabolic pathways for thousands of organisms.

This one hour workshop will be the first workshop in the series providing you with an introduction to BioCyc and showcasing the various features BioCyc supports. In addition, there will be an interactive demo that complements the overview on BioCyc.

Date: May 22, 2019 at noon        Register here

Location: Training lab (G3) of the Biomedical Library

If you do not have a PennKey please bring along a laptop

BioCyc Workshop #2

Come to our second BioCyc workshop of the series where we will use tools that BioCyc currently houses to explore similarities and differences between topoisomerase I protein sequences from E. coli, M. tuberculosis, and Bacillus subtilis (hay bacillus).

This second one hour workshop in the series will focus on using tools such as SmartTables: for importing topoisomerase I protein sequence features, ortholog comparative-analysis: for finding TopA orthologs, and MUSCLE: for performing Multiple Sequence Alignment. . If you could not attend our first BioCyc workshop in the series (“Introduction to BioCyc) but are familiar with using BioCyc, you are welcome nevertheless to register at either of the following:

Date: May 15, 2019 at noon        Register here

Date: May 29, 2019 at noon        Register here

Location: Training lab (G3) of the Biomedical Library
