Cellosaurus is a cell line knowledge resource. It is a collection of all cell lines used in biomedical research, which includes immortalised, naturally immortal, finite life, vertebrate and invertebrate cell lines, among others. In this course, we will introduce you to the different data fields in Cellosaurus, their content and their usefulness, as well as the curation strategies we use to optimize the data acquisition and inclusion of accurate and up to date information. We will describe what you can actually do with the Cellosaurus on ExPASy (full text searches and STR similarity searches using CLASTR), the different formats that are currently available for download, and our future plans for content and tool developments.
This course is addressed to both biologists making use of cell lines in their research activities and bioinformaticians wanting to get the most out of the data in the Cellosaurus.
At the end of the course, the participants are expected to:
