Pathway Tools Introductory Two Day Tutorial: January 16th-17th, 2020

  • SRI's Bioinformatics Research Group will be holding a Pathway Tools Tutorial Jan 16th - 17th, 2020, 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 browse PGDBs, use the Pathway Tools Omics Viewers for analyzing high-throughput data, and how to interactively update and curate a PGDB. Note that this two day tutorial does not include use of Pathologic to construct PGDBs or the construction and use of metabolic flux models

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
      • The Omics Dashboard
  • Day 2: 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, using their own laptops. No programming experience is required.

Four example PGDBs are:

Registration

Please see above for the registration types and fees. Registration fees will not be refunded after December 16, 2019.

Early registration rates are available for those who register before December 13th, 2019.

We strongly recommend registering as early as possible as this event may be cancelled if too few people register.


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:

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. Although it doesn't stop at either SFO or SJC, there are several ways to get to Caltrain. From SFO, you can take either BART or the Sam Trans SFO bus to the Millbrae Caltrain station. BART is also the best connection from OAK. Then take Caltrain south to the Menlo Park stop. From SJC there is a free shuttle that takes passengers from SJC airport to the Santa Clara Caltrain station (take a northbound train from Santa Clara to Menlo Park). Caltrain has week-day rush-hour express trains and runs every hour otherwise until around midnight. Caltrain schedules are subject to change. Please see the Caltrain website for up-to-date schedules. Ravenswood Ave is at the south end of the Caltrain station. Turn left and proceed 1-1/2 blocks.

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 main entrance (Building A). We will meet you in the lobby and check you in.
