Sequence databases and UniProt: use and pitfalls
Geneva, 21 & 26 June 2012
The goal of these 2 half-days courses is to give some basic theoretical and practical knowledge on sequence databases and, in particular, on the optimum use of the UniProt web site.
- Where do the DNA and protein sequences come from?
- What are the differences between UniProtKB/TrEMBL and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot?
- What are the manual and automated annotation pipelines ?
- How to estimate protein sequence accuracy and annotation quality?
- How to retrieve large dataset (i.e. complete proteome) for a particular organism?
- How to extract biological knowledge from a Blast result?
- What are the differences between UniProt and the NCBI protein sequence databases?
- What's about Gene Ontology?
