Who should attend?
This course is for anyone who works with biological sequences as part of their work or study. It is a hands-on tutorial consisting of a mixture of talks and hands-on exercises.
The morning session covers introductory material suitable for anyone not familiar with working with sequences and sequence alignments, or who has never edited or published alignments with Jalview. It also provides an introduction to tree based alignment analysis, which is one of the fundamental ways in which biological function and structural information can be extracted from sequence alignments.
The afternoon session provides an opportunity to explore Jalview's web based functions, including protein secondary structure and disordered region prediction. The final session will focus on exploring 2D and 3D molecular structure information in the context of multiple sequence alignments.
The material is based on the 'Introduction to Jalview' manual which is available from http://www.jalview.org/tutorial/training-materials/2014/Dundee/Oct/.
