HOW TO START

FROM AMINO ACIDS SEQUENCE TO PROTEIN FUNCTIONS:

protein identification using phylogenetic approach

OVERVIEW

The general purpose of the course is to demonstrate the state-of-the-art way to analyze the amino acids sequence in order to predict the protein structure and functions. To succeed this goal each student will get his/her own protein sequence, search the largest molecular biological databases and work with modern phylogenetic software. Several working files will be created after every 'day' of the course and should be attached to the report. However, the solid phylogenetic tree supporting the protein identification; the description of 2D and 3D structures of the protein and prediction of its possible functions (in a free style) will be the key point for the final grade.
