Protein, RNA and DNA multiple sequence alignment and functional analysis workshop using Jalview
On 9.15am - 5.00pm Friday 14th October
At Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, Room CV309b, Coville Building, 16 Richmond Street, Glasgow G1 1XQ
This one day computer based hands-on training course is designed for life sciences graduate students and researcher scientists who works with proteins, RNA and DNA sequence data. The course will involve presentations, hands-on exercises and demonstrations. Plus, there are opportunities during the day to discuss your own analysis problems with the Jalview developers. Participants are given a Jalview training manual.
The course is suitable for both Jalview novices and experienced users who would like to learn more about Jalview's capabilities.
Tea, coffee and lunch provided.
Course Aims: to provide training in how to use Jalview multiple sequence alignment visualisation program to visualise proteins, RNA and DNA data.
