Introduction to protein classification at the EBI
This course will provide an introduction to protein classification and basic concepts, such as proteins families, domains and sequence features.
An undergraduate degree in a life science subject or background knowledge in protein sequence and structure would be an advantage.
- Understanding the importance of classifying proteins
- Understanding how protein families, domains and sequence features can be defined, and how these can be used to classify proteins
- Becoming familiar with the different predictive methods you can use to help classify proteins: patterns, profiles, fingerprints and hidden Markov models (HMMs).
- Knowing which resources for classifying proteins according to family, domain and sequence features are available at the EBI
