Webinar Description:

Consider this scenario: you want to democratise access to omics data but find existing tools outdated, missing important datasets and relationships, and not addressing key questions. If this resonates with you, you’re not alone. This is now a common and pressing need, as multi-omics data grow rapidly in scale, complexity, and importance for life sciences R&D.

In this webinar, we will discuss issues with traditional technologies and approaches, and recommend more sustainable strategies based on:

  • Bioinformatician-friendly data/metadata management, search APIs, and visualisation framework
  • Service-oriented architecture and the Unix philosophy of building simple, modular, and extensible solutions

We will share examples around target identification and single-cell data exploration - how they can be built, customised and extended with flexibilities and minimal effort.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand specific technologies and a framework for building more flexible and scalable multi-omics visualisations, democratizing access to the rapidly-growing and evolving omics datasets.
  • Understand how the recommended strategies lead to:
    • Saved time and improved satisfaction for non-technical researchers
    • Reduced support burden on the bioinformaticians
    • Better utilisation and collaboration of multi-omics data
