A Critical Guide to the PDB https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/a-critical-guide-to-the-pdb This Critical Guide in the Introduction to Bioinformatics series provides a brief outline of the Protein Data Bank – the PDB – the world’s primary repository of biological macromolecular structures. The rationale for creating the resource and the kinds of information it provides are discussed, and issues relating to its evolution and growth are explored. Specifically, this Guide introduces the principal features of the PDB, the nature (and quality) of its contents and how these may be interrogated. On reading this Guide, users will be able to: i) explain some of the ways in which knowledge of protein structures is useful; ii) identify the constituent databases of the wwPDB; iii) explain key features of the RCSB PDB in terms of its data distribution, growth and redundancy statistics; iv) search the PDB using simple and advanced keywords and full sequences, and analyse differences between them; and v) explain various structural quality criteria, and infer the quality of individual PDB entries.

A Critical Guide to InterPro https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/a-critical-guide-to-interpro This Critical Guide in the Introduction to Bioinformatics series provides an introduction to the InterPro database, the largest, most comprehensive, integrated protein family database in the world. The rationale for creating the resource, the nature of its contributing databases and the kinds of information they provide are discussed, and the role of InterPro in protein classification and function-annotation projects is outlined. Specifically, this Guide introduces the principal components of the InterPro database, the differences between them, and how their integration creates a resource whose diagnostic power is greater than the sum of its parts. On reading this Guide, users will be able to: i) explain how protein family databases are used to help annotate uncharacterised protein sequences; ii) identify InterPro’s constituent data resources and explain the main methods that underpin them; iii) search InterPro using keywords and full sequences; iv) analyse and interpret search results in terms of protein family hierarchies, their structural domains and functional features; and v) track the provenance of InterPro’s annotations.

A Critical Guide to the UniProtKB Flat-file Format https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/a-critical-guide-to-the-uniprotkb-flat-file-format This Critical Guide briefly presents the need for biological databases and for a standard format for storing and organising biological data. Web-based interfaces have made databases more user-friendly, but knowledge of the underlying file format offers a deeper understanding of how to navigate and mine the information they contain, so that humans and machines can get the most out of them. This Guide explores the file format that underpins one of today’s most popular protein sequence databases – UniProtKB. Specifically, this Guide introduces the concept of database ‘flat-files’, and examines features of the UniProtKB flat-file format. On reading this Guide, users will be able to: i) identify key fields within UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot and UniProtKB/TrEMBL flat-files; ii) explain what these fields mean, what information they contain and what the information is used for; iii) analyse the information in different fields and infer structural and functional features of a sequence; iv) examine and investigate the provenance of annotations; and v) compare annotations at different time-points and evaluate the likely impact of annotation changes.

Signalling Networks: From Data to Modelling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/signalling-networks-from-data-to-modelling What is the course about? Signalling pathways and networks are very important to regulate and control cellular processes, cell fate, and their malfunctions often lead to diseases, such as cancer or diabetes. This course provides an introductory overview of the most useful resources and tools to investigate signalling pathways and networks, and also introduces basic approaches to model signalling events. The hands-on training will give a wide overview of tools and concepts related to signalling networks. What will I Learn?
