Structural Biology Tools

This morning we will be exploring protein structures (some background on proteins, folding, and structural biology techniques can be found here)–
we’ll examine where they live, what we can learn from them, how we can view them, how to make journal quality images, and how to contribute back to the community. Here’s a list of links that we will be making use of:

Some PyMOL tutorials that might be handy:

Please use some descriptive tags (3 to 5) and click on the Structural Projects category so that it displays on the right page!

Here’s what we have accomplished:
