Visualizing Microbial Proteins

What kinds of information do we expect to find in a structural model of a protein? Do sequence data provide similar information? A comparison of a CGTase and an alpha-amylase using both of these approaches provides evidence of functional similarities between the two enzymes. Search extensive online databases and explore additional proteins with bioinformatics tools.

  • investigate enzymes produced by diverse microbes using 3D structural models and sequence data
