EMBL-EBI: An introduction to sequence searching

EBI

 

Description

This workshop introduces the area of sequence similarity searching and focuses on how to use tools like BLAST and PSI-Search to find homologous sequences in EMBL-EBI databases. This session will include tips on which tools and database to use, input formats, how to change parameters and how to interpret the results page.

 

Trainers

Andrew Cowley, EMBL-EBI
