Introduction to sequence searching with EMBL-EBI - Cambridge, UK
An introduction on how to search EBI databases using sequence search tools. The workshop will introduce tools such as BLAST, FASTA and PSI-BLAST; explain how they function and the ways to make effective use of them to locate different types of biological data and information.
The workshop is aimed at PhD, post-doctoral researchers and principle investigators working in wet-lab biology. Participants who are looking for a basic introduction to the searching the EBI for nucleotide or protein sequences and want to know more about accessing these biological data.
After this course you should be able to...
- Understand the basics of sequence similarity searching and sequence homology
- Be able to find biological sequences from across the whole of EMBL-EBI
- Use different sequence similarity searching tools available at EMBL-EBI and understand which ones are appropriate for different applications
