What is it about?
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field of science that analyze and interpret biology using computational approach. In this article, we report a structural bioinformatics project carried out to determine structure–function relationships of the uncharacterized prokaryotic 5‐oxoprolinase subunit A (PxpA) using various bioinformatics tools. Ultimately, we were able to form a testable hypothesis on the function of PxpA, an achievement we consider encouraging other students to emulate

Why is it important?
Our findings show that inquiry‐based hands‐on exercises provide the most efficient approach to bioinformatics training. Thus, we encourage other students to explore various bioinformatics tools used in this work to find out structure and functional relationships between various species of organisms and proteins of interest.
