Welcome to the Proteopedia Video Guide.

On this page you will find several narrated videos to guide you through using Proteopedia. At Help:Contents you will find written guides.

Feel free to expand each video section with text explaining the concepts addressed in the video.


Video 1: Introduction

In this video you will find a brief introduction to Proteopedia. See also About Proteopedia.

Video 2: Searching - A quick introduction

This video will teach you the basics on how to search in Proteopedia. See also Help:Searching.

Video 3: Topic vs. Seeded pages

This video explains the difference between seeded pages that have been created automatically in Proteopedia for the over 200,000 PDB entries , and human-authored articles on broader topics like "Hemoglobin" and "Acetylcholinesterase". (See also Topic pages and Proteopedia:Table of Contents.)

The contents and design of seeded pages has been improved since this video was made, but this video still provides a useful overview.

Video 4: Editing, formatting, and styling text on a page

This video suggests that you practice editing text on the Sandbox page. Once you are ready to create your own page, see the instructions at Help:Getting_Started_in_Proteopedia#Your_First_Article.

This video will show you how to edit, format, and style text on a page by familiarizing you with the editing features of Proteopedia. Text with format and style markup is called wikitext.

Video 5: Uploading an image or file and adding an image to a page

Video 5 will show you how to upload an image or file to Proteopedia as well as how to add an uploaded image to a page. Also available are instructions for uploading a "molecule" or PDB file, and incorporating it into a molecular scene.

Video 6: Adding a 3D applet (3D structure) to a page

This video will show you how to add a 3D interactive molecular scene to a page in Proteopedia. This video is largely obsolete. In particular, it is usually far better to put all of your 3D scenes into a single new feature called a StructureSection that is automatically present when you create a new page. If needed, you can insert a StructureSection into your page by clicking this new button Image:Structuresection-button.png at the top of the page (which was not available when the video below was made).

To see what a well-developed StructureSection looks like and how it works, visit the page Hemoglobin. You will see that all the green links place their molecular scenes in the single JSmol at the upper right, and the text (with embedded green links) can be very long, scrolling next to the molecular scene.

Still, the video below will give you a general idea.

Video 7: Adding scenes (green links)

This video gives a basic introduction to adding scenes (green links) to pages in Proteopedia. It has been updated to use the newer StructureSection method.
