Viewing 3D Structures with Deep View

Many proteins have had their structures experimentally determined, and an examination of these structures can provide valuable insights into the function of these molecules. This course will show you how to use the free Deep View software to view and analyse both single and multiple protein...

Scientific topics: Protein structure analysis

Extracting biological information from gene lists

Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting...
