InterPro: Functional and structural analysis of protein sequences


InterPro is a classification database that provides predictive information about protein sequences. This course will show you what kind of information is available in InterPro, how to access it, and how to search the database.

An undergraduate degree in a life science subject, and some background knowledge in the molecular structure of proteins would be an advantage. 

Completing the Introduction to protein classification tutorial will provide suitable background knowledge for this course.
