Distance learning: Principles of Protein Structure (PPS)
Postgraduate Certificate Syllabus
|Section 1 - How to get started|
A brief introduction to where protein coordinate data are stored and how they can be accessed.
During the course you will be displaying molecules using Jmol or Rasmol. Here are the notes on how to download and run these programs. You should read these pages.
We will be using the Birkbeck MUD (Multi-User Dimension) for "real-time" meetings and tutorials in this course. You may have already visited it: if not, you should check it now. We will be using blogging, interactive text-based chat programs and other Web 2.0 based software to interact with each other, ask questions and share ideas about protein structure. Check the PPS blog.
