Updated Online Tutorials for DBTSS, Pfam and PDB
Date:10/30/2008

Comprehensive tutorials on the DBTSS, Pfam and PDB databases enable researchers to quickly and effectively use these invaluable resources.

Seattle (PRWEB) October 30, 2008 -- OpenHelix today announced the availability of newly updated tutorial suites on the DataBase of Transcriptional Start Sites (DBTSS), Pfam and the Protein Databank (PDB). DBTSS is a public resource for the analysis of promoter regions.

Pfam is a comprehensive database of protein families manually created from multiple sequence alignments and hidden Markov models and PDB is a repository for a tremendous collection of structural information about proteins and other macromolecular structures. These three updated tutorials, in conjunction with the additional OpenHelix tutorials on ASTD, Entrez Protein and MMDB, give the researcher an excellent set of resources to carry their research from transcript to 3D protein structure.

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:

DBTSS

  • to examine human promoter regions, and those in selected other species as well
  • to locate transcription start sites, promoters, transcription factor binding sites and SNPs
  • to use multiple query strategies to identify data of interest to your projects

Pfam

  • a variety of ways to search Pfam, including by keyword or by protein sequence
  • how to use the information in Pfam to predict functions for uncharacterized proteins
  • where you can access domain interaction data in Pfam
  • about Pfam Clans, which are groups of domains from a single evolutionary origin

PDB

  • how to search for structures and related information using a variety of strategies
  • to understand the results pages
  • how to access various tools to visualize and examine structural details

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.
