3. Translate each triplet into the corresponding amino acid: M E V F K A P P I G I STOP If your DNA sequence is correctly listed in the 5' to 3' orientation, you generate the protein sequence in the conventional N- to C-terminus as well. This approach has an advantage: You don’t have to think about these orientation details ever again. Thus, if you know where a protein-coding region starts in a DNA sequence, your computer can pretend to be a cell and generate the corresponding amino-acid sequence!

A better bet is to stick with review articles, where one expert summarizes the state of the art for you. Unless you’re an historian, you won’t have much need to know about the state of the art as it was 20 years ago (which seems more like three centuries ago in the field of molecular biology). Thus, we want to limit our PubMed search to recent review articles about dUTPase. Here’s how it’s done: 42 Part I: Getting Started in Bioinformatics Retrieving Protein Sequences If putting PubMed to use for bibliographic searches is the most common bioinformatics thing biologists want to do, then the next most popular thing is to retrieve relevant protein sequences from the Web to find out more about the subject at the molecular level.

In the Display drop-down menu, change the display option from Summary to Abstract. A list of abstracts appears. At the top of each abstract, you get the name of the relevant laboratory in Chicago. With the information contained in the Medline records, you have names, street addresses, and sometimes e-mail addresses. If necessary, you can use a telephone book (or a Web search engine) to supplement this information and find out how to contact these experts — the same day. ) Searching PubMed using limits PubMed offers yet another way of fine-tuning your queries: You can pre-define ranges for different attributes in different fields before you run your search.
