ANNOUNCING PROTEIN DOMAIN WORKSHOP 2000
The Protein Domain Workshop (PDW2000) is a practical workshop focused
on defining, discovering and using protein domain information. The
course includes using Profile Hidden Markov Models to search for domains
in both protein and DNA.
For complete information and application details for PDW2000 see URL:
The course is designed for biologists and computer scientists who want
to extend their sequence analysis skills to cover domain hunting techniques.
How to spot a domain from single sequence searches
How to find all the members and develop an effective multiple alignment
How to use the multiple alignment in profile-HMM searches
How to find domains in genomic DNA sequence
How to use the multiple alignment for secondary structure prediction etc.
The course lasts three days. The morning is split into two seminars on the
theoretical and practical aspects of the problem. The afternoon is devoted
to a practical session, with two participants to a workstation to provide
hands on experience of using the programs.
This workshop is jointly organised by Alex Bateman (Sanger Centre) and
Ewan Birney (EMBL-EBI).
