Have you ever struggled to find sequences for a non-coding RNA that you read about in a paper? Or have you tried to reconcile conflicting ncRNA annotations from different sources? If so, then this half-day workshop might be for you.
Update: Course notes are now available.
Held on October 19th, 2016, the event focuses on resources for long non-coding RNAs and microRNAs and will explore what data are available in databases like GENCODE, Vega, miRBase, RNAcentral, and others. The workshop follows the Computational RNA Biology meeting which also takes place at the EMBL-EBI campus.
The interactive sessions will consist of short presentations explaining how and when to use each resource, followed by hands-on exercises and an opportunity to ask questions of the database developers.
