The Protein Structure Series: Post – VI

In this series so far, we have looked at protein structure data and introduced a bit of python code to analyse it. The code below loads a protein structure and allows the user the extract the protein’s amino acid sequence. In this post we will try to extract more information from the sequence we have… Read More »

The Protein Structure Series: Post – V

From last time In the last post, we moved from explaining the theory of proteins, especially their 3D structures to actually handling the structures with python in the jupyter notebook. If you are new here please have a look at the preceding posts to catch up. In this post, I will assume you have looked… Read More »

The Protein Structure Series: Post – IV

Recap: Just to refresh for myself and all of you, what we have been looking at so far in the Protein Structure Series is understanding protein structures. While many text books already cover a lot of the basic stuff, these posts are especially structured for aspiring researchers who want to start working with protein structures… Read More »

Protein Structure: Basics of Protein Bioinformatics (Part 2)

The previous post focused a little on protein synthesis and briefly discussed protein sequences and some areas in which they are used. Another important area of protein bioinformatics is protein structure. This post introduces the basis of protein structure. Protein Structure: Once the synthesis of polypeptide chains (proteins) at the ribosome is complete, the polypeptide… Read More »
