This tutorial will guide you through loading and analyzing integrated biological data (generally genomic or proteomic) in InterMine via an API in Python or R. Topics covered will include automatically generating code to perform queries, customising the code to meet your needs, and automated analysis of sets, e.g gene sets, including enrichment statistics. Skills gained can be re-used in any of the dozens of InterMines available, covering a broad range of organisms and dedicated purposes, from model organisms to plants, drug targets, and mitochondrial DNA.


  • Basic Python or R skills are advantageous but not required.
  • WiFi-enabled laptop with Python or R Studio.
