EMBL-EBI’s Macromolecular Structure Databasecuptonsmile.gif

Fri, 01 Sep 2006 20:57:28 +0000

Somehow I managed to get signed up for the electronic version of: OBBeC® Life Science Computing & Bioinformatics Magazine I’m not really a big fan of electronic books and mags, but I thought I’d give it a try (beats getting a paper copy in the mail). There’s a nice 4 page review of EMBL-EBI’s Macromolecular […](image)

Wed, 16 Aug 2006 20:28:53 +0000

Have you ever wanted to align a protein sequence to a DNA sequence? There a few reasons this can be useful…. Well, you can do it easily with NAP, developed by Xiaoqiu Huang, which allows also allows gaps in the alignment.

Have you ever wanted to make a small diagram to show a conserved motif or a sequence aligment? And then pulled your hair out while trying to get it to look JUST THE WAY YOU WANT? There’s a few programs to help, but most don’t quite have the flexibility or resolution. I always used to […](image)
