Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.


Goals for this session:

    Connect what you have observed with sequence alignments and trees to protein structures.

  • Map a sequence alignment on a structure
  • Interpret the results — Where are the rapidly changing residues? Where are the slowly changing residues located?



    In groups – continue working either with the alignments you made yesterday (requires at least 6 sequences) for which a protein structure exists – or search the PDB for your favorite protein and use it to view a preformed multiple sequence alignment (MSA) from Consurf.

Post (to either the blog or project page) a report including:

  • A brief intro to your protein
  • Bibliographic reference
  • Species used in the alignment
  • An image
  • Your interpretation of the results
  • To questions you are still working on
