Training materials for DisProt users

New training materials are available for DisProt users: a protocol - available in Current Protocols in Bioinformatics - describing how to explore manually curated annotations of intrinsically disordered proteins with DisProt, and two webinars - available in TeSS, the ELIXIR Training Portal - describing how to use the resource.

DisProt webinars available in ELIXIR TeSS

An introduction to DisProt (beginner level)

At the end of this course users will be able to:

  • Explain what DisProt is and how to use it
  • Explain how to navigate the DisProt database
  • Explain and describe the home page features (e.g. datasets, blog, Twitter)
  • Discuss and interpret the DisProt entries
  • Identify where to find the DisProt Documentation
  • List the various pages and content available in the documentation: Biocuration, Help and About

Exploring structural and functional annotations of IDPs with DisProt (intermediate level)

At the end of this course users will be able to:

  • Explain what are the key features of a DisProt entry: discuss the DisProt feature viewer; explain and describe structural and functional annotations
  • Explain how to perform complex searches in DisProt: identify and describe protein functions; describe and analyze thematic datasets
  • Explain how to download the output of a search in DisProt

DisProt protocol in Current Protocols in Bioinformatics

Exploring Manually Curated Annotations of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins with DisProt

Updated protocol, open access, featuring three basic protocols and two support protocols:

  • Basic Protocol 1: Performing a search in DisProt
  • Support Protocol 1: Downloading options
  • Support Protocol 2: Programmatic access with DisProt REST API
  • Basic Protocol 2: Exploring the DisProt Ontology page
  • Basic Protocol 3: Visualizing and interpreting DisProt entries–the SARS-CoV-2 Nucleoprotein use case
