Bioinformatics: From Genome Sequences to Protein Structures

Structure prediction

Introduction

In this tutorial we will investigate the structural information we can get from a protein sequence alone.

We will look at the use of:

These methods have their uses, but none is particularly accurate and they can give wildly erroneous results.

While you work through this practical, write down your answers to the various questions. These questions are just meant so that you can check for yourself that you have understood the key points in the tutorial.
