Reactome Would Like Your Input – User Survey & T-Shirts

Last week some of you may have attended the Reactome webinar with Mary & I and heard about some of the great new features over there. I had already been exploring & testing the interface updates because I am currently updating our full tutorial on Reactome, but the webinar was a nice confirmation that I was hitting the ‘right stuff’. The webinar was recorded and should be released soon, so if you missed the webinar stay tuned & check it out when available. I thought it was interesting – it provides more background & theory on Reactome, plus some case studies. Our tutorial is more hands-on, step-by-step exploration of how to use many, but not all, of Reactome’s functions so the webinar and our tutorial really complement each other very well, in my opinion.

But I haven’t gotten to the t-shirts yet – my bad. Everyone has now had a week since the webinar to explore Reactome & the Reactome team is hoping that you are ready to share your thoughts, suggestions and ideas with them. As an ‘encouragement’ they are offering up 5 Reactome t-shirts to random survey participants. Here’s the call for survey takers that we got from Robin:

We appreciate your assistance in evaluating Reactome. Your responses will give us an indication of the effectiveness of the Reactome website and tools, and areas in which improvement could be made. We would like to know a bit about your background and research interests and welcome your written comments and suggestions.

The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete. The information you provide will never be made publicly available or shared with third parties.

Participation in the survey is optional. However, five lucky participants who complete the survey will receive a Reactome T-shirt.

You can access the survey at:

Thank you for taking part.

I will definitely be taking the survey, so probably will Mary. I’ve got a few thoughts to share & a lot of complements on what they’ve done. Fingers crossed that they get a lot of feedback & find a few more t-shirts to pass out – wouldn’t it be cool if we could all be walking Reactome billboards? :)
