Drug Discovery Workflow Workshop: Using Open PHACTS

Users of Pipeline Pilot and KNIME workflow tools are invited to participate in a workshop this 19-20 May, at VU University in Amsterdam. This will be a small, informal workshop to introduce users to how the Open PHACTS API can help answer scientific questions. There will be no cost to attend the workshop.

Contact us to register your interest now!

The workshop will explore how the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform can be used to develop solutions for scientific use cases. We will make use of the Open PHACTS Pipeline Pilot components and KNIME nodes to access the Open PHACTS API, and learn how different nodes and components can be linked together. We will also look at how data of interest can be extracted from API results, and used as input for downstream nodes and components to generate meaningful results.

There will be many opportunities for interaction and networking among participants.

The agenda for the workshop is as follows:

May 19

13:00-13:15 Welcome
13:15-14:00 Overview of the Open PHACTS API: Inputs and Outputs
14:00-14:30 Characteristics of Pipeline Pilot Components
14:30-15:00 Examples of Pipeline Pilot Workflows
15:00-15:30 Characteristics of KNIME Nodes
15:30-16:00 Tea and Coffee Break
16:00-16:30 Suggestions for Workflows of Interest
16:30-18:00 First Hands-on Session

VU University will host a dinner for attendees on May 19 at De Bosbaan.

May 20

09:00-09:30 Questions from Previous Hands-on Session
09:30-12:30 Second Hands-on Session: Implementing Workflows
12:30-13:30 Lunch
13:30-14:00 Wrap-up: Learnings and Feedback
14:00-17:00 Room Open for Networking (Optional)

Please register now if you are interested in attending!

Note to participants: We will have limited installation support during the workshop. Participants are therefore asked to have Pipeline Pilot components or KNIME nodes installed before arriving. Pipeline Pilot users will also need to be able to establish a connection to their home Pipeline Pilot server via the WiFi connection we will provide.
