Pathway Tools Introductory Tutorial:

March 7th - 9th, 2017

  • SRI's Bioinformatics Research Group will be holding a Pathway Tools Tutorial Mar 7th - 9th, 2017, at SRI International in Menlo Park, California.

 

Introduction

The goal of the tutorial is to teach scientists how to use the Pathway Tools software to create a Pathway/Genome Database (PGDB) for an organism of interest, how to interactively update and curate a PGDB, how to publish a PGDB on the web, and how to use the Pathway Tools Omics Viewers for analyzing high-throughput data.

Tutorial Schedule

  • Day 1: Pathway/Genome Navigator
    • Search operations
    • Gene, metabolite, reaction, and pathway pages
    • Genome browser
    • BLAST search, sequence pattern search, extracting sequences
    • Metabolic network browser, regulatory network browser
    • Metabolic route search
    • Omics data analysis
      • Displaying high-throughput data on individual pathways and metabolic network diagrams
      • Pathway collages
      • Genome browser tracks
  • Day 2: PathoLogic: Creation of a new Pathway/Genome Databases
    • Metabolic Reconstruction
    • Pathway-hole filler
    • Operon predictor
    • Inference of transport reactions
    • Creation of metabolic flux models from PGDBs
  • Day 3: Editing Pathway/Genome Databases
    • Editing pathways, reactions, proteins, and regulatory information

Topics and scheduling are subject to change.

Tutorial Details

Each day's tutorial will last from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Registration and security check-in will start at 8:30AM. Each day will combine lectures with lab sessions in which students apply the software to a PGDB. No programming experience is required but a familiarity with basic UNIX commands is recommended.

Four example PGDBs are:

 

Registration

Please see above for the registration types and fees. This registration fee is non-refundable.

Early registration rates are available for those who register before Febuary 10th, 2017.

Online registration means one or more attendees will participate in the tutorial remotely.  Attendees will be able to see the presentations via WebEx and will hear the presenter via a call-in number. The call-in number will not be toll-free. Questions may be asked via the WebEx chat interface or via the teleconference, but the ability of SRI staff to answer complex questions during the lab sessions for online attendees will be very limited. Online registration attendees will be sent the login information in advance of the tutorial.


Computers and Software

We recommend that you execute a Pathway Tools license agreement before (1-2 wks in advance) you attend the tutorial, which can be done online at [Pathway Tools License].

We require that attendees use their own computer with Pathway Tools already installed for use at the tutorial. This enables the user to leave with not only knowledge of how to use Pathway Tools, but with a working installation on their own computer. Please see the Pathway Tools Installation Guide for more information.

 

Readings

We suggest that you read the following before the tutorial:

  • Pathway Tools User's Guide Chapters 1-3, 6.1-6.5, 7. This document is present in the Pathway Tools software distribution in directory aic-export/pathway-tools/ptools/VERSION/doc/manuals/

We also have webinars on various aspects of using the Pathway Tools software.

Travel

Google Map: SRI, International 333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025

For those of you traveling from out of town, please be advised that SRI is approximately 20 miles from both San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and San Jose International Airport (SJC), and is approximately 30 miles from Oakland International Airport (OAK). SRI is about 30 minutes south of SFO by car on highway 101.

We suggest you try these two hotels first so that most people end up staying at the same hotels: Menlo Park Inn, Red Cottage Inn.

The SRI web site contains directions to SRI, other nearby hotels, and driving directions to SRI. Please see [SRI Directions].

SRI International is at 333 Ravenswood Ave in Menlo Park, between Middlefield Rd and El Camino. 101 exit: Willow Road.

SRI is about 30 minutes south of SFO by car on highway 101. You can take Super Shuttle from the airport to save money over a taxi cab, but they will probably make a few stops along the way.

You can also take the Caltrain commuter train line. Take BART or a taxi from SFO or OAK airports to the Millbrae Caltrain station. Then take Caltrain south to the Menlo Park stop. There is also a free shuttle that takes passengers from SJC airport to the Santa Clara Caltrain station. Caltrain has week-day rush-hour express trains and runs every hour otherwise. Caltrain schedules are subject to change. Please see the Caltrain website for up-to-date schedules.

 

Arriving at SRI

Note: There are two entrances to SRI on Ravenswood Ave. Please use the main entrance, closer to Middlefield Road, for parking your car. The sign by this entrance says, at the bottom, "Welcome Event Entrance". Please take a look at the SRI campus map below, and park your cars in the parking lot next to I-Building. After parking your car, you should proceed to the I-1D room. There will be a check-in table by the entrance.
