Summary: This webinar will introduce how MetaCore can be used to analyze “OMICs” data and explore mammalian biological signaling pathways and networks. Using a Parkinson’s Disease (PD) test case, we will examine how MetaCore can help you identify key signaling pathways and proteins important for transcriptional changes in Parkinson’s brains. In addition, we will explore the MetaCore knowledge base to build data driven signaling networks and identify potential avenues for future PD drug development. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions so that we may demonstrate the depth and breadth of biological content that is available through MetaCore and important for your research.
MetaCore™ is an integrated knowledge database and software suite for pathway analysis of experimental data and gene lists. The scope of data types includes microarray and sequence-based gene expression, SNPs and CGH arrays, RNAi screens, proteomics, metabolomics, Co-IP pull-out and other custom interactions. MetaCore™ is based on a proprietary manually-curated database of human protein-protein, protein-DNA and protein compound interactions, metabolic and signaling pathways for human, mouse and rat, supported by proprietary ontologies and controlled vocabulary. The analytical package includes easy-to-use, intuitive tools for searching and data visualization, enabling the identification of the most relevant biological pathways, networks, and processes.
