Introduction to Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSAs) and
Monday 17th - Tuesday 18th December, 2012
Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, UK
This introductory two-day courses focuses
on multiple sequence alignment (MSA) and phylogenetics - tools
important for a wide range of different bioinformatic analyses e.g.
protein structure prediction, comparative genomics etc.
The course will focus on providing experience of examining,
manipulating, and interpreting the results of these analyses: in
particular of tree topologies, branch lengths, roots, splits, and
positional equivalence in MSAs. Another focus will be on giving
examples of biological questions that can be investigated using MSAs
Please note that the focus is on protein sequences - although in
some places, examples will include nucleic acid sequences.
