ChEBI user meeting coming in May

Chemical Entities of Biological Interest (ChEBI) is a freely available dictionary and ontology of molecular entities focused on ‘small’ chemical compounds hosted and maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI). The term ‘molecular entity’ refers to any constitutionally or isotopically distinct atom, molecule, ion, ion pair, radical, radical ion, complex, conformer, etc., identifiable as a separately distinguishable entity. The molecular entities in question are either products of nature or synthetic products used to intervene in the processes of living organisms.

The ChEBI team is now pleased to announce the first ChEBI user day to be held at the EBI on May 19th/20th 2008. The programme as well as registration information can be found here. The user day will have talks by the user community on their use of the database and ontology, followed by ChEBI team talks on latest developments, the curation process and hands-on training. Open discussions on how ChEBI should be further developed will round out the programme. And off you go to register … 🙂

  1. Won’t be there. Have fun though! I guess there will be no IRC side to the meeting, will there?

  2. This is actually not a bad idea. Not sure if I will do it or better blog about it.

    Hi Christoph, some preliminary ChEBI notes here and here if you are interested. See you on Monday.
