TCD's SFI Bioinformatics Support: Image Map Tutorial (this Friday!)


As part of the bioinformatics support for SFI-funded research in TCD a tutorial on image maps has been organized for this Friday.
It will provide information on how to turn images into interactive maps on the Web. Many examples can be found online, such as KEGG pathway maps (e.g. the T-cell receptor signalling pathway in humans) or the Ensembl genome browser (e.g. the location of the TLR4 gene).
Put simple, the tutorial will explain how to define specific areas of an image to be used as links to additional information.
