Conference-Service.com offers, as part of our business activities, a directory of upcoming scientific and technical meetings. The calendar is published for the convenience of conference participants and we strive to support conference organisers who need to publish their upcoming events. Although great care is being taken to ensure the correctness of all entries, we cannot accept any liability that may arise from the presence, absence or incorrectness of any particular information on this website. Always check with the meeting organiser before making arrangements to participate in an event!
Meeting organisers can submit meetings free of charge for inclusion into the listing.
To address this issue a range of bioinformatics tools and methods are now available: providing predictions of functional annotations using experimentally characterised sequences and structures. In addition, Next Generation Sequencing is allowing us to study the individual variance between genomes within a population.
This training event aims to provide an introduction to a range of computational tools that can be used to functionally annotate protein sequences and structures. It will also introduce some of the latest molecular modelling software for analysing single nucleotide polymorphisms.
Participants will be able to gain hands on experience of these tools and are strongly encouraged to bring their own data.
Many of the proteins singled out for study using these tools are often associated with disease. The workshop will explore how these tools can be used in a pre-competitive drug discovery setting. The event will be of interest to any researchers, both in academia or industry, who are requiring functional insights into a range of proteins.
Aimed at participants from graduate level onwards with no prior experience of modelling but a good understanding of protein structure principles and terminology, this event offers training in both modelling and structure-based functional inference.
