FAIRsharing Educational Material https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/fairsharing-educational-material Whether you are a researcher, standard/database developer, funder, journal editor, librarian or data manager, FAIRsharing can help you understand which standards are mature and appropriate to your use case. By mapping the relationships between standards and the databases that implement them, or the policies that recommend them, FAIRsharing enables you to make an informed decision as to which standard or database to use or endorse. In this training, educational material, we describe the FAIRsharing resource and explain how you can use it to find the appropriate resource for your work.

UNIX Fundamentals https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/unix-fundamentals-35adf82d-ae32-449d-9627-43b5d18da8cc This self-learning tutorial aims to present the UNIX environment and to provide the most basic commands to users with no or very little UNIX knowledge. The examples are taken from various Biological fields but have been chosen carefully to be easily accessible to a wide audience. At the end of the course, participants are expected to be able to: Have some understanding on UNIX systems Navigate through the UNIX filesystem Execute and understand some UNIX process commands Correctly set file permissions Perform basic file management Participants are encouraged to follow the tutorial sections sequentially. The tutorial content is sometimes an oversimplification of the Truth - yes, we know! Due to the diversity of computer systems, we will just assume that participants do have access to a terminal.

Bioinformatics: Gene-protein-structure-function

This presentation examines the available in silico tools for protein structure and function prediction. It examines the major protein family databases (PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, etc.), and explores why tools like PSI-BLAST, while convenient and easy to use, may not always give optimal results. The...

Bioinformatics: Gene-protein-structure-function https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/bioinformatics-gene-protein-structure-function This presentation examines the available in silico tools for protein structure and function prediction. It examines the major protein family databases (PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, etc.), and explores why tools like PSI-BLAST, while convenient and easy to use, may not always give optimal results. The presentation concludes with an analysis of 'expert' systems and integrated approaches (GeneQuiz, MAGPIE, InterPro, etc.), and dispels the commonly held notion that one database and/or one analysis tool is best.

InterPro: An introduction

This presentation introduces the background to the InterPro database: what it is, where it came from, and what was the vision behind its creation. It examines in particular whether the database has evolved in line with its original vision, and asks whether the resource is still fit for purpose.

PRINTS: A protein family database with a difference https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/prints-a-protein-family-database-with-a-difference A presentation designed to introduce the concept of protein family analysis and characterisation using motif-based methods, with a particular focus on protein fingerprinting. Following a general introduction to sequence analysis, and the fingerprint approach, specific examples are given to demonstrate the importance of understanding how to interpret the results of different sequence analysis methods and, crucially, the differences between them, and the added value that fingerprints bring.
