BLAST and multiple sequence alignment (MSA) programs http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/blast-and-multiple-sequence-alignment-msa-programs-0b2b34d0-a157-49d4-a065-3dcad67ff99d Background The rapid identification of pathogens infecting livestock is essential to appropriately respond to the threat. The number and the variety of pathogen sequenced genomes have been growing more dramatically these recent years, because of the new sequencing technologies. This wealth of new data is very useful to the research field through the development of bioinformatics tools and databases that deal with large amount of sequences. Among them, BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) and MSA () programs are very efficient for protein or nucleotide sequence similarity search. The present course introduces the main biological databases, alignment tool BLAST and Multiple sequence alignments (MSA) programs, and interpretation of results. Goal The ultimate aim is the better management of animal diseases by preparing laboratory technicians, veterinarians and molecular epidemiologists from diagnostic and research laboratories of developing FAO and IAEA member states, to be self-sufficient in the data analysis by interpreting the phylogenetic trees and their relationships. Target audience Researchers, Laboratory technicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists from diagnostic and research laboratories of member states of IAEA and FAO. The concepts are explained in generalized way to help all academicians, researchers, students from all countries working in the field of molecular genetics and epidemiology.

Integrating publications into bioinformatics analysis http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/integrating-publications-into-bioinformatics-analysis Overview Research literature contains a wealth of information that can be extracted at scale using text-mining technologies. To make text-mining data available to a wider group of researchers, the publications database, Europe PMC, provides access to millions of text-mined annotations, such as genes and proteins, metabolites, species, mutations, phosphorylations, interactions, associations, and many more. This webinar will demonstrate how to access text-mined literature evidence programmatically, and how to supplement it with bibliographic information for advanced use cases. Two of such use cases, mapping of tropical disease research by author affiliation geoparsing and comparison of applicability of analytical chemistry techniques, will be introduced by invited speaker, Dr. Magnus Palmblad. This webinar was recorded on 2nd October 2019. It is best viewed in full-screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded below. Audience This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn about accessing text-mined literature evidence programmatically. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be useful. See the EMBL-EBI training pages for a list of upcoming webinars.

How to Share Text Mining Results in Biology http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/how-to-share-text-mining-results-in-biology Overview Though text mining becomes more widespread in biology, an average researcher can rarely use it to their advantage. In this webinar, Europe PMC presents a tool to easily share annotated biological entities and relations with the research community. Europe PMC Annotation Submission System allows text miners and curators in the field of life sciences to make their results available to the public. Annotated concepts can be browsed and searched for both on Europe PMC website as a part of SciLite tool and Advanced search, as well as via the Annotations API. This webinar was recorded on 9th of July 2019. It is best viewed in full-screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded below.

Europe PMC: Services for academic authors http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/europe-pmc-services-for-academic-authors Researchers are often asked to maintain an up-to-date publication list, whether for job applications, tenure evaluations, or grant proposals. An easy way to do this is by using your ORCID iD and linking it to your published papers. An ORCID is a unique identifier - personalised number that is assigned to you when you register. By using your ORCID in addition to your name you can make sure that you are easily distinguishable from other researchers with the same name, keep track of your work through name changes, and even pull together different kinds of achievements, like grant awards, training, etc. This video shows how you can register for an ORCID, add your publications in three easy steps to build your digital CV, and how to get a personal author profile page that showcases your publications and citations.

Some instructions are specific to our local computer lab setup but overall the content should be adaptable. Note that because some of the exercises make use of public databases they need to be checked and in some cases updated every time the lab is run. The lab is meant to be easily assessed using an online quiz (I use moodle). I provides a hands on introduction to NCBI BLAST, Interproscan, Clustal, MUSCLE and T-COFFEE, and HMMER.  Blast, Hmmer, Interpro, Multiple sequence alignment, Similarity searching biology and bioinformatics sophomore undergraduates 2013-11-12 2017-10-09

Multiple sequence alignment and phylogeny - undergraduate lab http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/multiple-sequence-alignment-and-phylogeny-undergraduate-lab This is lab 4 in a series of labs given as part of an undergraduate "Bioinformatics for biologists" course delivered to 2nd and 3rd year biology and bioinformatics undergraduate students, as part of a course focusing on using bioinformatics tools. Some instructions in it are specific to our lab environment - including some not so current programs (clustalw, treetool, seaview, phylip) as that's what we have installed at the moment and they're stable, but the content can easily be adapted to other environments and programs. The lab is meant to be easily assessed and I get the students to answer the question in a moodle quiz which makes marking easier. The lab follows some lectures on multiple sequence alignment and molecular phylogeny.
