The ECN committee is very excited to announce the Second Online Webinar:

Using MetaCore: How to analyse omics data and better understand underlying biological mechanisms”

Thursday 18th of May 2017 at 16:00h (CET).

Attendance is FREE but registration is required (limited space and attendance arranged based on ECN membership and order of registration).

To register please send us an email at with:
* Email subject ‘Registration to Online Webinar’
* Your name and surname

Details on how to attend this webinar will follow.

As part of NUGO MetaCore software subscription we are setting-up a general presentation for NUGO institutes to make the most of the tool during the coming months. This omics data analysis platform contains more than 1.5 million molecular interactions, over 1,500 pathway maps and 10 network building algorithms. Data contained within MetaCore is industry leading in accuracy, reliability, and comprehensiveness, manually currated by PhD and MD level research professionals and updated quarterly.

We’d like to invite you take advantage of our complimentary training that will show you how to:
* Find regulators and/or effectors of your gene of interest and direct links to peer reviewed references
* Upload and set thresholds on experimental data
* Assess Pathway/Ontology enrichment of differentially expressed genes
* Visualize gene lists or experimental data on pathway maps to enhance data interpretation.

Speaker Details
The session will be led by Dr Olivia Alder, a scientist that has spent several years in the wet lab during her PhD at Imperial College London and a post-doctoral position at BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver.  Most recently Olivia was a Bioinformatician at the University of Leeds where she analysed exome, expression and copy number data from bladder tumour samples. Her work has been published in journals such as Cell Reports, Nature Communications and Development.
