Choose between either Cytoscape User or Cytoscape App Developer workshops:

  • Workshop 01: The Cytoscape User Workshop (Max attendance: 45)

    Room: East Coast

    The network perspective on biology aims to bring meaningful context to high-throughput data for exploratory analysis, interpretation and hypothesis generation. As a free and open source tool, Cytoscape has become the most popular network visualization and analysis tools in the biological sciences. It is now cited in over 500 publications per year and downloaded close to 8,000 times per month. This workshop will provide a general introduction to network biology studies and Cytoscape concepts, including a hands-on session for universal data import and demonstration of a few of the over 200 freely available apps contributed by the Cytoscape developer community.

    By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:
    •     Import any tabular data in Cytoscape
    •     Integrate your data with public sources of networks, pathways and other datasets
    •     Master layout and data visualization

    Instructor:  Alexander R. Pico, Gladstone Institutes, San Francisco, United States

  • Workshop 02: The App Developer Workshop (Max attendance: 20)

    Room:  Embarcadero

    Cytoscape's real power lies in the ecosystem of community-developed apps. The most common types of apps provide access to third-party biological databases, customize data import for domain-specific data sets, and perform custom analyses and workflows. Browse the full collection at http://apps.cytoscape.org. During this workshop, we will demonstrate how to develop apps for Cytoscape, targeting individuals who want to take advantage of the network visualization and analysis capabilities of Cytoscape and extend it for custom use cases.

    By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:
    •     Navigate the complete Cytoscape API
    •     Setup an app development environment and cycle
    •     Start your own app development project from scratch
    •     Edit and contribute to other open source Cytoscape app projects
