    Sequence databases and UniProt: use and pitfalls

    Geneva, 21 & 26 June 2012

    The goal of these 2 half-days courses is to give some basic theoretical and practical knowledge on sequence databases and, in particular, on the optimum use of the UniProt web site.

    - Where do the DNA and protein sequences come from?
    - What are the differences between UniProtKB/TrEMBL and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot?
    - What are the manual and automated annotation pipelines ?
    - How to estimate protein sequence accuracy and annotation quality?
    - How to retrieve large dataset (i.e. complete proteome) for a particular organism?
    - How to extract biological knowledge from a Blast result?
    - What are the differences between UniProt and the NCBI protein sequence databases?
    - What's about Gene Ontology?
