Sequence Based Gene Function Annotation  
April 20,27 2016

This workshop will use BLAST (regular & position-specific scoring matrix), HMM tools for sequence alignment, conserved protein domain identification and function prediction. Gene Ontology (GO) function annotation system will be explained. The workshop will also cover how to scale up the function annotation at genomic level using InterproScan and BLAST2GO. The workshop will include one hour lecture, and a half hour hands-one time running BLAST2GO. Registration fee is $100.

Bioinformatics Facility is organizing 6 workshops in the Spring 2016 - if you'd like to register for all of them at a reduced rate please go to this page.

The workshop will include practical exercises, that can be conducted on your own machine, or on BioHPC Lab workstations especially reserved for the workshop. Our workstations run Linux operating system, so if you are going to use our machines and are new to Linux computing environment you may want to attend our free  workshops "Introduction to BioHPC Lab" and "Linux for Biologists". You can also use both workshop materials posted online to refresh your Linux skills:

Linux for Biologists Part 1   Linux for Biologists Part 2

Access to BioHPC Lab workstations requires a Lab account. If you do not yet have an account on BioHPC Lab system, we will create one for you. Also, we will assign a machine for you to work on during  the workshop (during and after the sessions). Machine reservations will be active from Mon April 7th until end of the day Fri May 2nd.

Machine allocations are posted here.
