New and Updated Online Tutorials for PROSITE, InterPro, IntAct and UniProt
Date:1/14/2009

Comprehensive tutorials on the publicly available PROSITE, InterPro, IntAct and UniProt databases enable researchers to quickly and effectively use these invaluable resources.

Seattle (PRWEB) January 15, 2009 -- OpenHelix today announced the availability of new tutorial suites on PROSITE, InterPro and IntAct, in addition to a newly updated tutorial on UniProt. PROSITE is a database that can be used to browse and search for information on protein domains, functional sites and families, InterPro is a database that integrates protein signature data from the major protein databases into a single comprehensive resource and IntAct is a protein interaction database with valuable tools that can be used to search for, analyze and graphically display protein interaction data from a wide variety of species. UniProt is a detailed curated knowledgebase about known proteins, with predictions and computational assignments for both characterized and uncharacterized proteins. These three new tutorials and an updated UniProt tutorial, in conjunction with the additional OpenHelix tutorials on MINT, PDB, Pfam, STRING, SMART, Entrez Protein, MMDB and many others, give the researcher an excellent set of training resources to assist in their protein research.

The tutorial suites, available for single purchase or through a low- priced yearly subscription to all OpenHelix tutorials, contain a narrated, self-run, online tutorial, slides with full script, handouts
and exercises. With the tutorials, researchers can quickly learn to effectively and efficiently use these resources. These tutorials will teach users:

PROSITE

*how to access information on domains, functional sites and protein families in PROSITE
*to perform a quick and an advanced protein sequence scan
*to find patterns in protein sequences using PRATT
*to use MyDomains to create custom domain graphics

InterPro

*to use both the basic and advanced search tools to find detailed information on entries in InterPro
*how to understand and customize the display of your results
*to use InterProScan to query novel protein sequences for information on domains and families

IntAct

*how to perform basic and advanced searches to find protein interaction data
*to effectively navigate and understand the various data views
*to graphically display and manipulate a protein interaction network

UniProt

*to perform text searches for relevant protein information
*to search with sequences as a starting point
*to understand the different types of UniProt records

To find out more about these and other tutorial suites visit the OpenHelix Tutorial Catalog and OpenHelix or visit the OpenHelix Blog for up-to-date information on genomics.
