Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the SIB Bioinformatics Workshop entitled:
"UniProt protein sequence databases: use and pitfalls"

This workshop, to be held on Friday 1st April 2011, will give some  
basic theoretical and
practical knowledge on protein sequence databases and, in particular,  
on the optimum use of the UniProt web site.

- Where do the protein sequences come from?
- What are the differences between UniProtKB/TrEMBL and UniProtKB/ 
- What are the manual and automated annotation pipelines ?
- How can protein sequence accuracy and annotation quality be estimated?
- How can large dataset (i.e. complete proteome) for a particular  
organism be retrieved?
- How can biological knowledge from a Blast result be extracted?
- What are the differences between UniProt and the NCBI protein  
sequence databases?
- How can accession numbers, GIs or other record identifiers  
corresponding to the proteins of interest be retrieved?

Important information as well as the registration page are available  

Hope to see you there !

For the organizers,

Vassilios Ioannidis
