Spring 2016 Chem423 Team Projects

Understanding the chemical basis of disease and life processes

Follow instructions posted at Student Projects for UMass Chemistry 423 Spring 2016.

Each team should together agree upon a topic and pdb code (check the list below to be sure your topic is not already taken), then log in to Proteopedia (see instructions in Moodle) and edit this section to list your topic and pdb code.

2/8/16 Topics are all set and copied to Student Projects for UMass Chemistry 423 Spring 2016 -- notify Prof Thompson of any changes by email.

Questions & Answers

Here is a place to post new questions and answers for each other about how to do things in Proteopedia. Good tips will be added to the Help section for future classes (above link).

There is a recurring problem where sections below an edited section disappear (you can still see them in edit window). Don’t try to insert your scene into the command that loads the initial molecule (which may have caused the rest of the sections not to load). Write some text and then insert green scenes into text. -- Prof Thompson 2/17/16

Prof Thompson 3/3/16: To highlight part of your molecule and hide the rest

1. always use "replace selection” to be sure you aren’t bringing along some other selection, and also use “hide selection” under representations.

2. Turn on selection halos (under the structure “show selected with halos” - click the ON button). They make it much easier to keep track of what is selected, especially after multiple "invert selection" commands.

For example: selections: DNA, replace selection invert current selection (selects all but DNA) representations: hide selection (hides all but DNA) selections: invert selection (back to DNA) representations: backbone, set representation
