Cambridge 2015 Jalview Training Course

We will be holding a 3 day Jalview and JPred hands-on workshop on Monday 11th May 2015 at University of Dundee, hosted by David Judge.

Register via the University of Cambridge website.

The main topics of the course is protein and RNA multiple sequence alignment, protein secondary structure prediction, trees, sub-family and function analysis.

The course is for anyone who works with sequence data and multiple sequence alignments from proteins, RNA and DNA.

The course will be held at the Bioinformatics Training Room, Craik-Marshall Building, Downing Site.

The course involves of a mixture of talks and hands-on exercises:

Day 1 (9:30 - 17:30) is an introduction to protein multiple sequence alignment editing and analysis with Jalview.

Day 2 (9:30 - 17:30) focuses on using Jalview for RNA sequence analysis, and also integrating cDNA and protein analysis and covers more advanced applications after lunch.

Day 3 (9:30 - 16:00) concentrates on protein secondary structure prediction with JPred version 4 as well as protein sub-family analysis to identify functionally important residues.

There will be opportunities for attendees to get advice on analysis of their own sequence families.
