EMBOSS (European Molecular Biology Open Software Suite) is a free open-source package designed for the needs of the molecular biology community. Currently, EMBOSS has approximately 100 applications that cover several areas of molecular biology: sequence alignment, database searching, protein motif identification, and many others.

This tutorial will cover an overview of software, file and database for EMBOSS, DNA sequence analysis and protein sequence analysis, protein primary and secondary structure, etc.

Prerequisites: Basic molecular biology concepts
