The Open PHACTS Discovery Platform is a freely accessible infrastructure that semantically integrates publicly available data for applied life science R&D. The Platform provides a powerful Application Programming Interface (API) which allows application builders and researchers to query the integrated data using existing applications, to build new applications and to access the API using workflows tools (e.g. KNIME and Pipeline Pilot). Examples of such applications, which illustrate what can be achieved, include the Open PHACTS Explorer, ChemBioNavigator, and PharmaTrek.
The Open PHACTS Community Workshop in London on Thursday 26th June aims to introduce members of the academic community to the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform.
The workshop will be of interest to:
· Researchers who would benefit from directly querying the Open PHACTS API using scripting languages or by developing applications to consume the data.
· Lecturers & Principal Investigators who can use the Open PHACTS application ecosystem to access the data within the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform.
The Community Workshop will introduce attendees to the Open PHACTS API and showcase how it can be used to create new or enhance existing applications. We will demonstrate, using real life use-cases, how universities can use the Open PHACTS API and associated tools for teaching and research in drug discovery.
Venue: Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BA
The Workshop is free to attend for those at academic institutions, for more information or to register please email email@example.com.
