2.1 Bioinformatics I - searching biological databases (practical)
This practical takes you through the analysis of a DNA sequence using online databases and tools, from finding a likely reading frame to identifying the protein. It involves the NCBI ORF finder, the University of Gothenburg's DNA translation tool and the NCBI BLAST tool. It then explores the NCBI's Human Genome Project browser. Screenshots from 24/09/16 accompany the instructions and questions, but note that the websites may have changed since then.
