Access the genbank/embl database, and search for some sequences for a multiple
Multiple alignment Exercise
(No ideas??..try these key-words: bHLH, tim44, vhl, tyrosine kinase, ETS,
or some other favourite protein/DNA sequence.)
Copy these sequenes in FastA format (5 or 6...depending on their length!),
and paste into a file for analysis. Use the program CLUSTALW, MUSCLE AND t-COFFEE to conduct
the multiple alignment.
a) What sequences did you use? (protein/dna?, names of gene)
b) What did the alignmentS show?
c) Were there any domains or regions of similarity between your squences?
