Sequence-structure-function relationships of proteins are central to a comprehensive understanding of cellular biology. However, many proteins lack direct and detailed information regarding structure, function, and complex formation. This knowledge gap can be overcome through clearly defined relationships between proteins and the integration of existing data.
Participants will be introduced to primarily web-based tools, designed for life scientists without substantial computational training, for integration and inference of protein structure and function data. The lectures and workshops will be led by the SIB developers of these methods, with specific emphasis on translating this training to the participants' own research questions culminating in a "bring your own protein(s)" workshop.
This course is intended for a wide audience covering Master and PhD students, post-docs, and senior researchers in all areas of life science.
At the end of this course, participants are expected to be able to:
- identify proteins related by sequence and/or structure and integrate functional annotations from public databases
- develop homology models of protein structure, assess their quality, and make inferences regarding function and regulation
- integrate and interpret protein-protein interaction data
- apply these methods to their own proteins of interest
Participants should bring a laptop with wireless connectivity and make sure they have the permission to install software if necessary. Knowledge of UNIX is not necessary.
The registration fees for academics are 200 CHF. This includes course content material, coffee breaks, and a social dinner. Participants from non-academic institutions should contact us before application
Deadline for registration and free-of-charge cancellation is set to January 15, 2016. Cancellation after this date will not be reimbursed. Please note that participation to SIB courses is subject to this and other general conditions.
Upon reception of the confirmation email, participants will be asked to confirm attendance by paying the fees within 5 days.
