PhD & Postgrad Sequence Alignment and Analysis Training Workshop

(1) Multiple Sequence Alignment and Analysis with Jalview on Thursday 23rd November 2017

Day 1 workshop employs talks and hands-on exercises to help students learn to use Jalview, a versatile protein and nucleic acid sequence alignment and analysis tool developed within the School of Life Sciences. We will cover launching Jalview, accessing sequence, alignment and 3D structure databases, creating, editing and analysing alignments, phylogenetic trees, analysing alignments with 3D structures, and preparation of figures for presentation and publication.

Workshop trainer: Dr Jim Procter and Dr Suzanne Duce

 

(2) Protein Sequence Analysis on Thursday 30th November 2017

Day 2 workshop aims to give an understanding of how best to use computational methods to “make sense” of the structure and function of your favourite protein. The workshop will introduce the principles of sequence analysis and its relationship to protein structure and function. It will highlight common methods and tools for protein sequence analysis and multiple sequence alignment will be explained. The workshop will include hands-on examples of methods that exploit evolutionary information to predict structural features from sequence and to identify functionally important residues by sub-family analysis.
