  • ELIXIR 3D-BioInfo Community webinar series

    29 June 2021

    ELIXIR 3D-BioInfo Community webinar series https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-3d-bioinfo-community-webinar-series Structural bioinformatics provides methods and tools to analyse, predict, archive and validate the three-dimensional (3D) structure data of biomacromolecules such as proteins, RNA or DNA. The specific 3D shapes of macromolecules allow them to perform many functions within cells. Understanding their structures is therefore crucial for understanding the interactions and functions of cells, which in turn opens up potential for innovations in biotechnology and drug development. The 3D-BioInfo Community is concerned with improving the ontologies and validation tools for enabling better integration of the data and methods for analysing and predicting protein structures and their complexes. This series of 10 webinars is organised by the ELIXIR 3D Bioinfo Community and will present the 5 major aims of the community around protein structural annotations, protein complexes, protein ligand interactions, protein nucleic acid interactions and protein engineering. The webinars will also highlight recent developments towards meeting these aims.  June 29th 2021, 15.00 CEST FAIR Infrastructure for protein structural and functional annotations (3D-BioInfo Activity I) Speakers: 1.

  • ELIXIR Webinar: BRENDA - The Comprehensive Enzyme Information System

    1 July 2021

    ELIXIR Webinar: BRENDA - The Comprehensive Enzyme Information System https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-webinar-brenda-the-comprehensive-enzyme-information-system   The BRENDA enzyme database is the main enzyme and enzyme-ligand information system. The aim of the webinar is to give an introduction to BRENDA to scientists across all disciplines within the life sciences, to learn and understand the history, scope, content, data sources, and organisation of the database and how to work with the tools in diverse application areas.   About BRENDA Established in 1987, BRENDA provides full information on: classified enzymes and their function, metabolic role, structure and specificity, tools for exploring pathways, linking metabolomic data to biochemical pathways, tools for exploring the functional properties of enzyme-like active sites, and substrate-enzyme interactions. BRENDA provides continuity and reliable data, continuous curation and updating with information on existing enzymes and the integration of newly discovered enzymes. Enzymes, representing the largest and by far most complex group of proteins, play an essential role in all processes of life, including metabolism, gene expression, cell division, the immune system, and others. Their function, also connected to most diseases or stress control makes them interesting targets for research and applications in biotechnology, medical treatments, or diagnosis. BRENDA provides more than 4 million data entries for ~90,000 enzymes from ~13,000 organisms, manually evaluated and extracted from ~157,000 primary literature references, combined with information by text and data mining, data integration and prediction algorithms. Supplements comprise disease-related data, protein sequences, 3D structures, predicted enzyme locations and genome annotations. Their functional parameters and other properties are collected, integrated, and made available to the scientific community.  In 2018 BRENDA was appointed to ELIXIR Core Data Resource with fundamental importance to biological and biomedical research and long-term preservation of biological data. BRENDA is part of the de.NBI, the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure and the ELIXIR Germany Node, in the service Center for Biological Data (BioData). A main goal of de.NBI is to provide excellent bioinformatics services and resources for life sciences research in academia and industry.   2021-07-01 16:00:00 UTC 2021-07-01 16:00:00 UTC [] [] [] [] [] []
