Protein classification: An introduction to EMBL-EBI resources
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.
About this course
- 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
