InterMine user tutorial

InterMine integrates biological data sources, making it easy to query and analyse data. It is a downloadable platform that operators can install and integrate with their own systems.

InterMine is a generic model-based platform that is used to provide data to end users in many different life science domains, such as synthetic biology and biomedical research. It is particularly popular with model organism projects.

This documentation is for users of an InterMine installation. Among other things, it describes how they can search for biological entities (gene, protein, pathway, etc.), run sophisticated queries over integrated data [an example might be useful], analyze query results and gene lists (gene ontology enrichment analysis, for example) and download or interact with data programmatically (e.g. by scripts written in Python, R and other languages).
