PRINTS: A protein family database with a difference

by | Jul 12, 2013

A presentation designed to introduce the concept of protein family analysis and characterisation using motif-based methods, with a particular focus on protein fingerprinting. Following a general introduction to sequence analysis, and the fingerprint approach, specific examples are given to demonstrate the importance of understanding how to interpret the results of different sequence analysis methods and, crucially, the differences between them, and the added value that fingerprints bring.
