ELIXIR Structural Bioinformatics 2: Exploring protein domains and functional sites

This training workflow introduces how to search (using query protein sequences or structures) for protein domains, conservation and protein family information, surface and topological interfaces, and possible ligand binding sites.

It is designed to lead you through the process of finding sequence or structure information for your protein of interest, and using it as a search query to investigate several different online tools - each able to provide information about different domains, function or features.

It will help guide you through exploring these tools and interpreting the predicted functional information to give you greater understanding of key protein features and sites - and lead to the next workflow in the series on exploring knowledge of how genetic variation may impact on the structure/function.
