By default, PubMed assumes that you want to use both search terms — Abergel AND dUTPase — when looking for the appropriate research papers. By default, PubMed also assumes that you want to look for these words in the titles OR in the abstracts of the papers. Figure 2-4 shows the results of your first combined search. Chapter 2: How Most People Use Bioinformatics Figure 2-3: The results of a standard PubMed search for Abergel. Because only one paper corresponds to your query, PubMed automatically switches from the “summary” to the “abstract” mode, and you can now read what this unique paper is all about.
During this period, biologists were mostly sequencing DNA fragments that were a few thousand nucleotides in length, simply because they were interested in specific genes that they had started working on years before. Most of the bioinformatics tools available today were created during that period. They include ߜ All basic sequence-alignment programs ߜ Phylogenetic and classification methods ߜ Various display tools adapted to relatively small-sequence objects (such as protein sequences no more than a few thousand characters long) Genomics: Getting all the genes at once The determination of the first complete genome sequence terminated the gene-by-gene routine and initiated the era of genomics, the genetic mapping, physical mapping, and sequencing of entire genomes.
Besides winning one more Nobel Prize for the nascent field of molecular biology, this feat made the doctors realize that proteins have precise and specific shapes, encoded in the sequence of amino acids. Hence, they predicted that proteins with similar sequences would fold into similar shapes — and, conversely, that proteins with similar structures would be encoded by similar sequences of amino acids. The function of a protein turned out to be a direct consequence of its 3-D structure (shape).
