In this 40-minute interactive workshop, you will learn how the Open Targets Platform can help you answer your research questions about drug target identification and prioritisation. For example:
- What drug targets are associated with psoriasis that have Open Targets Genetics Portal evidence, are expressed in immune system pathways and are predicted tractable for antibody compounds with high confidence?
- What diseases and phenotypes are associated with EIF4G1 that have Project Score evidence from Behan, et al 2019 (PMID: 30971826)?
- What are the black box warnings and adverse events for metformin?
You will also learn how to access all of our open data across different data touchpoints, including the web interface, API playground, and Google BigQuery.No advance preparation is necessary. And no previous technical or programming skills are needed as we support multiple ways to access our data.But we do encourage you to bring your laptop as we will provide interactive walkthroughs and sample scripts and API queries that you can run directly in your browser.To learn more about the Platform before the workshop, visit the Platform (https://platform.opentargets.org/), read our documentation (https://platform-docs.opentargets.org/), and check out our latest publication (https://doi.org/10.1093/nar/gkaa840).
