Tutorial Details: Introduction to Protein Sequence Analysis

Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2007, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 585 Walter
Instructor(s): Yanji Xu,

This is an introductory tutorial for protein sequence analysis. The tutorial will show how to use bioinformatics and computational software tools for multiple protein sequence alignments, phylogenetic analysis, pattern identification, and prediction of functional domains from primary protein sequences. ClustalW, MUSCLE, T-COFFEE, Readseq, PFAAT, Phylip, Hidden Markov Models, HMMER, Pfam and Smart will be covered. Some public online databases and resources for protein sequence analysis will also be introduced.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of protein sequences and structures
