Go ahead and get your feet wet with some basic molecular biology concepts — and the relevant questions intimately connected with such concepts — that all together define bioinformatics. Analyzing Protein Sequences If you eat steak, you’re intimately acquainted with proteins. ) For you non-steak lovers out there, you’ll be pleased to know that proteins abound in fish and vegetables, too. Moreover, all these proteins are made up of the same basic building blocks, called amino acids. Amino acids are already quite complex organic molecules, made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur atoms.

Once synthesized, each RNA molecule quickly adopts a compact fold — trying to pair as many nucleotides as possible, while keeping the chain not only flexible but true to its own geometry. Hairpin shapes, as shown in Figure 1-8, are Chapter 1: Finding Out What Bioinformatics Can Do for You the basic elements of RNA secondary structure; they’re made up of loops (the unpaired C-U in Figure 1-8) and stems (the paired regions). Just for fun, verify for yourself that a palindromic RNA sequence results in a perfect hairpin, with no loop.
