Bioinformatics - Food Detective: a Practical Guide

This Practical Guide introduces the idea of computers as tools to help understand aspects of biology. In particular, it looks at how DNA sequences can be used to identify specific organisms, why this is important in the food industry, and how this can be used to help de- tect food fraud. Analyses...

Bioinformatics - Food Detective: a Practical Guide https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/bioinformatics-food-detective-a-practical-guide This Practical Guide introduces the idea of computers as tools to help understand aspects of biology. In particular, it looks at how DNA sequences can be used to identify specific organisms, why this is important in the food industry, and how this can be used to help de- tect food fraud. Analyses are run online using sequence data from the 4273pi project website: 4273pi.org. This Guide introduces a popular Web-based tool for searching biological sequence databases, and shows how to identify different spe- cies based on their specific DNA sequences – their ‘barcodes’. On reading the Guide and completing the exercises, you will be able to: i) explain what is meant by DNA barcoding; ii) search biological sequence databases using the online program BLAST; iii) judge the reliability of database-search results in terms of their statistical significance; and iv) evaluate the biological implications of search results with reference to food safety.

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.

Understanding Multiple Sequence Alignments - Lecture Handouts & Utopia Hands-On https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/understanding-multiple-sequence-alignments-lecture-handouts-utopia-hands-on This presentation aims to provide a basic understanding of the range of contexts in which protein sequence alignments are used and are useful, focusing on the importance of sequence similarities and differences, and what they tell us. Overall, the objective is to offer different perspectives and insights into the meaning of alignments, and to convey an understanding of the use of metaphor and its role in interpreting alignments. The talk is accompanied by a hands-on practical analysis using the Utopia sequence analysis suite.
