The effects of a mutation on protein structure and function

With NGS you can measure all mutations in a human’s exome in a matter of hours. That is fabulous, but it is not the answer to the real question, but rather, the beginning of a lot of work. You must determine which of the many mutations is causal for the phenotypic state of the human you are sequencing, and once that has been determined, you also want to know WHY the mutations causes the phenotypic state, in other words, what does the mutation do to the protein (and after that, what does that again to the human).

Goal of the workshop: teach how to analyze mutant protein structures.

Date: June 3-4, 2014

Target audience: The course is open for everybody in the NGS field.
