An Ion Channel Database – Annotation via Homology Modelling

This is an electronic copy of poster presentation at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory conference jointed held with the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, England. It is welcome for anyone to view the work via clicking the link or to download a copy of the digital version of this presentation.

It briefly addresses the construction of genomic database (of ion channel proteins, in this case), which focused particularly on potassium channels and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Target sequences of interest can be studied further to understand how they may function biologically, by means of pairwise alignment (2D) and computational models (3D) provided any significant homology detected from the previous alignment.
