Together with Toby Gibson and Niall Haslam, Aidan Budd is organizing an EMBO-funded course in September. It’s mostly aimed at wet-lab scientists – see below. He asked me to circulate this to other scientists who I think might be interested in the course – I thought this might be a suitable spot – the full poster can be found here.
EMBO Practical Course on Protein Bioinformatics Tools – Focus on
Regulatory Proteins: Sequences, Structures, Interactions, Networks
(25th – 30th September 2011, EMBL Heidelberg, Germany)
– How can I come up with new ideas for the function of my proteins of interest?
– What is already known about the function of these proteins?
This course presents bioinformatics tools and concepts that can help address these two questions that are crucial for the work of many experimental/wet-lab biologists. Wet-lab researchers, with limited experience using such tools, yet who often need to answer these questions in their research, are the main target group of the course.
In particular, the course will cover analyses of protein sequences, 3D structures, interactions, and networks. Additionally, we will focus on proteins as modular entities, with both intrinsically ordered and disordered modules responsible for specific aspects of protein function.
