Register Now for October Virtual Crash Courses on RCSB PDB APIs

09/14 

Register for Part 1 of <I>Leveraging RCSB PDB APIs for Bioinformatics Analyses and Machine Learning</I>Register for Part 1 of Leveraging RCSB PDB APIs for Bioinformatics Analyses and Machine Learning

RCSB PDB APIs build on the data available in the PDB archive and additional internal and external annotations. They power the RCSB.org website. Because they are publicly available, they can be also used without restrictions by users and external resources.

Join the RCSB PDB in virtual crash courses in October to learn how to Leverage RCSB PDB APIs for Bioinformatics Analyses and Machine Learning. This virtual course consists of 2 parts.

Part 1 will introduce the Data and Search APIs in a lecture format. Part 2 will offer hands-on exercises.

Registration is required for the Zoom meeting information, but attendance is at no charge.
Please sign up for Part 1 at https://go.rutgers.edu/41ds618a.

Who Should Attend

  • Bioinformatics or structural biology researchers
  • Researchers that need to cross- reference PDB and data from other resources
  • Anyone interested in large scale analyses of structural data (experimental or computational)

Part 1: Introducing RCSB APIs

  • October 12th 16:00 - 18:00 UTC (12:00 - 2:00 PM EDT / 9:00 - 11:00 AM PDT)

The lectures in this session will introduce you to the two main RCSB PDB APIs: Data API and Search API. After completion of this session, you will

  • Understand the data structure and its relation to the PDBx/mmCIF dictionary and external data
  • Become familiarized with the two available interfaces in the Data API: GraphQL and REST
  • Write search queries with one or multiple search conditions to find PDB identifiers
  • Be familiar with search services beyond text: sequence, seqmotif, structure, chemical, strucmotif
  • Become acquainted with the Python client for Search API

Part 2: Hands-on exercise

This course is being offered at two different times:

  • October 19th 16:00 - 18:30 UTC (12:00 - 2:30 PM EDT / 9:00 - 11:30 AM PDT) or
  • October 27th 00:00 - 02:30 UTC (October 26th 8:00 - 10:30 PM EDT / 5:00-7:30 PM PDT)

In this guided session, you will work with an example of a typical workflow that integrate Data and Search APIs and then apply the knowledge to your own specific problem.

Attendance (or viewing) of Part 1 is a prerequisite for registering for Part 2 (at either time). Registration for Part 2 will be available after Part 1 has concluded. Please contact info@rcsb.org if you are unable to attend Part 1 but would like to participate in Part 2.

Visit the Rutgers Institute for Quantitative Biomedicine for full details.
