The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is presenting a “Protein Lounge” class on July 8. The free training will be held in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10, from 1 to 3 p.m. Registration is required (use the link provided below).
Protein Lounge provides interactive databases and software for understanding cellular networks, protein interactions involved in cell signaling, and mechanisms of cell survival and apoptosis, leading to development or identification of drug candidates against a variety of diseases. For example, databases such as siRNA targets, peptide-antigen targets, kinase-phosphatase, and transcription factors. Protein Lounge also has a database of illustrated signal transduction pathways interconnected with an extensive protein database and with online gene/protein analysis tools.
During the class, you will learn how to make the most of this suite of databases and tools using specific gene/protein for practice.
- Design siRNA using easy siRNA
- Build pathways using Pathway Builder
- Find antigenic peptides using Peptide Finder
- Search databases such as Transcription Factors and GPCR
- Search and manipulate pathways
- Explore biology animations
The class will be taught by Dr. Samal Babru of NIMH and is open to NIH and HHS staff
Registration for this class is no longer available.
The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program has licensed Protein Lounge for NIH staff. Access information is available at https://nihlibrary.nih.gov/services/bioinformatics-support/analysis-tools-databases.
