Introduction to qualitative modelling with MaBoSS

Boolean modelling uses a simple representation of biological entities as either active or inactive, and describes their relations with logical formulas. MaBoSS extends Boolean modelling by adding a notion of continuous time, with the introduction of rates of (in)activation. This enable the...

Bioinformatics: Gene-protein-structure-function

This presentation examines the available in silico tools for protein structure and function prediction. It examines the major protein family databases (PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, etc.), and explores why tools like PSI-BLAST, while convenient and easy to use, may not always give optimal results. The...

InterPro: An introduction

This presentation introduces the background to the InterPro database: what it is, where it came from, and what was the vision behind its creation. It examines in particular whether the database has evolved in line with its original vision, and asks whether the resource is still fit for purpose. 

Keywords: Integrated diagnostic tools, Protein family characterisation, Protein sequence analysis

PRINTS: A protein family database with a difference

A presentation designed to introduce the concept of protein family analysis and characterisation using motif-based methods, with a particular focus on protein fingerprinting. Following a general introduction to sequence analysis, and the fingerprint approach, specific examples are given to...
