Tutorial: Protein Family Sorter Service¶
This set of short videos provides a step-by-step demonstration of using the PATRIC Protein Family Sorter to analyze protein families across a set of closely related bacterial genomes. From these videos you will learn how to do the following:
Use the global search and the genome groups to select a set of genomes for analysis
Initiate a Protein Family Sorter Service job
Use the Protein Family Sorter tabular and heatmap features to analyze the job results
Download heatmap data
Use other tools such as Compare Region Viewer, Genome Browser, and BLAST to further interpret the results
