Bioinformatics - the Power of Computers in Biology: A Practical Guide https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/bioinformatics-the-power-of-computers-in-biology-a-practical-guide This Practical Guide in the Bringing Bioinformatics into the Classroom series introduces simple bioinformatics approaches for database searching and sequence analysis. A ‘mystery’ gene is used as an exemplar: we first characterise the gene, then use it to explore the impact of gene loss in humans. Analyses are run both online and at the command line, the latter using Raspberry Pi computers running the 4273π variant of Linux (4273pi.org). Specifically, this Guide introduces a popular Web-based tool for searching biological sequence databases, and shows how similar functionality can be achieved using the Linux command line. On reading the Guide and completing the exercises, users will be able to: i) search biological sequence databases using the online program BLAST, and navigate GenPept sequence records; ii) execute some basic Linux commands to perform a set of simple file-manipulation tasks; iii) perform BLAST searches via the Linux command line; and iv) evaluate the biological implications of search results, with reference to mutations and function.

A Critical Guide to the neXtProt knowledgebase: querying using SPARQL https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/a-critical-guide-to-the-nextprot-knowledgebase-querying-using-sparql This Critical Guide in the Introduction to Bioinformatics series briefly outlines how to explore the neXtProt human protein database using SPARQL. While text indexation has made database contents more accessible, being able to combine search criteria for specific content permits more powerful querying, and provides a means to mine the information stored in databases. This Guide illustrates the use of the SPARQL semantic query language to interrogate neXtProt and other databases that provide SPARQL endpoints. Specifically, the Guide introduces the concept of database ‘semantic triples’, and examines features of the neXtProt data model. On reading this Guide, and completing the exercises, users will be able to: i) identify key entities within the neXtProt data model; ii) explain what these entities represent, what information they contain and what the information is used for; iii) identify key SPARQL syntax elements; iv) understand SPARQL tutorial examples; and v) write a SPARQL query to retrieve entries matching specific criteria.
