The Protein Structure Series: Post – VII

The final post in this series has been published as a screen cast on YouTube. The final code used in the video is Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that the research question was phrased in this way to make it easy to understand and develop code to answer it. In the end of the video… Read More »

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 »

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 »
