Detection and evolution of repetitive proteins


 Wednesday 27 June 201816:00 17:00 (Europe/London)


Highly repetitive proteins are a source of biological variability used, for example, by pathogens to escape the host immune system. Therefore, their detection and evolution are central to many research projects. In this webinar I will explain how to find repeats in protein sequence databases and how to investigate their evolution using bioinformatics tools.


This webinar is aimed at scientists interested in the study of protein sequence and evolution. Knowledge of basic biology and programming will be assumed.
