Reactome’s continued success will be determined by the extent to which we reach out to current and new potential users. We will reach out to bioinformaticians, traditional molecular and cellular biologists, computational biologists, software developers, geneticists, clinicians, educators and students to ensure that all potential uses are aware of the resource and take full advantage of the services we offer. Therefore, we offer a series of outreach and training programs which will:

  1. foster the training of the next generation of scientists
  2. collaborate with data providers
  3. actively reach out to present and new users and collaborators.

Simultaneously, we encourage the reuse of the Reactome data model and software by supporting its adoption by outside groups, in particular by the cancer, clinical and disease research communities.

Outreach takes on a variety of forms, such as public talks, lectures, visiting universities and colleges and supporting traditional science events (meetings, conferences, and workshops). Education is a major focus of Reactome community outreach and aims to inform biologists, clinicians, and bioinformaticians about what Reactome can do.

Reactome training teaches new and current users how to use Reactome resources to help meet the efforts of their organizations, groups, or specific audience.
