Understanding Multiple Sequence Alignments - Lecture Handouts & Utopia Hands-On http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/understanding-multiple-sequence-alignments-lecture-handouts-utopia-hands-on This presentation aims to provide a basic understanding of the range of contexts in which protein sequence alignments are used and are useful, focusing on the importance of sequence similarities and differences, and what they tell us. Overall, the objective is to offer different perspectives and insights into the meaning of alignments, and to convey an understanding of the use of metaphor and its role in interpreting alignments. The talk is accompanied by a hands-on practical analysis using the Utopia sequence analysis suite.

Clinical Bioinformatics I - Tutor notes http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/clinical-bioinformatics-i-tutor-notes Clinical Bioinformatics I is a 10 credit module of the new MSc in Clinical Bioinformatics, delivered by Nowgen/NGRL and the University of Manchester in the UK. Clinical Bioinformatics is one of the streams of the NHS Scientific Training Programme (STP). The programme is a mixture of work placement based training interspersed with academic teaching.  The tutor notes describe the content taught on each day of the 5 day course, and the approach used to teach the materials. Each day is divided into two parts, a series of lectures in the morning to introduce the topics, then the afternoon sessions present a series of case studies for the students to work through in a 'problem based learning (PBL) approach to reinforce the lecture content.  Clinical bioinformatics, Genomics, Introduction bioinformatics Life Science Researchers healthcare professionals postgrad 2013-11-28 2017-10-09
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...

Bioinformatics: Gene-protein-structure-function http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/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 presentation concludes with an analysis of 'expert' systems and integrated approaches (GeneQuiz, MAGPIE, InterPro, etc.), and dispels the commonly held notion that one database and/or one analysis tool is best.

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.

PRINTS: A protein family database with a difference http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/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 demonstrate the importance of understanding how to interpret the results of different sequence analysis methods and, crucially, the differences between them, and the added value that fingerprints bring.
