The Bioinformatics Roadshow - University of Tor Vergata, Rome
What will I learn?
You will learn about several of the EBI biological databases and information services. More specifically, these will include:-
- Get an Overview about the EMBL-EBI: Research, Services, Industry and Training.
- The UniProt databases and where to find different types of data.
- To gain practical experience in querying the database, including sequence searching, retrieval and alignment.
- To understand the different methods used to predict protein classification and to learn how to use InterPro effectively.
- To learn what is an ontology and why is it important: Introduction to the structure and content of GO.
- Ontologies and their applications: Using GO annotations for functional characterisation of gene products and ChEBI.
- To understand the fundamentals of protein structures - tertiary and quaternary structures and structure quality.
- To learn how to search, retrieve, visualise and analyse structures and their bound inhibitor, or drug molecule environments.
- To analyse similar structures, small structural motifs and similar interfaces.

Please complete the registration, standard registration closes 12 March, 2010. Items marked * are mandatory. Incomplete registrations will not be processed.
A limited number of travel fellowships are available for SLING roadshows. Fellowships are only applicable to persons travelling from outside the host institute and attending for the full duration of the course. Fellowships contribute towards the cost of travel, accommodation and subsistence. If you wish to be considered for a fellowship please indicate this on your registration and complete a bursary application form.
Bursary application form
Only complete bursary applications received before the bursary deadline of 12 February, 2010 will be considered. Selection will take place within 4 weeks of this date and successful applicants will be notified before close of final registration on 12 March, 2010.
