Cytoscape Team at RSGw/DREAM

The Cytoscape team was thrilled to be a part of this year's Regulatory and Systems Genomics conference along with DREAM Challenges. Thanks to support from the National Resource for Network Biology (http://nrnb) and Agilent Technologies, we were able to host a number of unique events integrated into the meeting. The week started off with a sold-out Cytoscape workshop for new users, and a parallel workshop for Cytoscape app developers. These workshops included an introduction to network biology approaches, hands-on sessions with the latest Cytoscape 3.2.0 release, and professional app development training. The next day we shared a well-attended Cytoscape poster session with DREAM Challenges, mixing two communities of like-mined researchers. Finally, during the Systems Biology track, we integrated two Cytoscape App Expo sessions. Each session consisted of four 10-minute presentation about new Cytoscape Apps and how to apply them to systems biology research. All in all, a hugel y successful event with lots of great interactions. Thanks again to the RECOMB and ISCB co-organizers!
