Uppsala Software Factory - Teaching and education

Some material is available for teaching and (self-) education purposes:

  1. For absolute O beginners, there is a tutorial called "O for Morons". It covers the basics of using O (versions 5.9 and 5.10), and introduces many of the rebuilding tools. It does not cover tools specific for macromolecular crystallography.

  2. For those of you who want to learn something about map interpretation, Alwyn has made available the material he uses in courses on this subject, using P2 myelin protein as an example. More recently, the ESSENS maps for this protein have also been added (these show where the helices and strands are located; see the ESSENS manual).

  3. For a worked introduction to model rebuilding (and some basic X-PLOR refinement), a tutorial called "O for the Structurally Challenged" is available. You can have a sneak preview of the contents of the tutorial.

  4. For people who want to get an introduction to the use of NCS averaging (using RAVE), a worked example is available.

  5. For those who want to use the forward and/or backward traced structure of holo cellular retinoic-acid-binding protein type II (for instance, to discuss quality control and error detection), a set of coordinates and structure factors is available.

  6. Introduction to Structural Databases. Tutorial prepared for the 1999 EMBO Practical Course in Bioinformatics in Uppsala. This is an adaptation of a tutorial created by Tom Taylor.
