Welcome to the UCLA Comparitive Genomics Tutorial

This page is provided as a tutorial to investigate protein functional linkages using a variety of computational methods and webservers.

We will learn to investigate protein functional linkages using the following computational methods:

Rosetta Stone method
Phylogenetic Profile method
Conserved Gene Neighbor method
Operon method

And we will use the following webservers to investigate protein functional linkages:

STRING - Search Tool for the Retrieval of Interacting Genes/Proteins
UCLA ProLinks Server
GenoList Genome Browser
RegulonDB A - Database on Transcriptional Regulation and Operon Organization
DIP - Database of Interacting Proteins
