On Thursday 30th November, Geoff Barton and Suzanne Duce ran the second Dundee Protein Sequence Analysis workshop of the year. The course considered the relationship between protein sequence and structure. It used JPred4 to predict protein structure from multiple alignments. Then used protein sub-family analysis in Jalview to identify functionally important regions.
On Thursday 23rd November, Jim Procter and Suzanne Duce ran the fourth Jalview workshop of 2017. Attended by Ph.D. students and researchers at University of Dundee and Glasgow. The picture was taken as Jim talked about the relationship between protein sequences and their structure.
A video on 'Secondary structure prediction of proteins in Jalview' has been added to our YouTube channel. JPred predicts the location of secondary structure (α-helix and β-strand) and solvent accessibility from a single sequence of multiple alignment.
There are just a handful of spaces left at the Jalview’s ‘Protein, RNA and DNA multiple sequence alignment and functional analysis’ workshop.
The course is suitable for both Jalview novices and experienced users who would like to learn more about Jalview's capabilities.
The course will cover topic such as loading, editing and saving sequences, multiple sequence alignment, creating trees, viewing annotation and features, working with 3D structures.
