Tutorial Details: Protein Sequence Motifs Analysis

Date: Thursday, July 1, 2004, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: Room 138 Cargill
Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Motifs are conserved regions in protein or nucleic acid sequences that are predictive for structures and functions of these sequences. There are a few motif analysis programs and databases publicly available. They are extensively used for individual sequence structural or functional analysis and genome sequence annotations.

This tutorial will review all these motif programs and databases and demonstrate Pfam and InterProScan software.

Prerequisites: Basic Knowledge of Biology
