Feedback form on Assignments

This is an EXPERIMENTAL page for you to add your comments about the assignments. Please try it out so we can get a feel how the technology works. If it is successful and people like it, we can extend it so that you can annotate other (perhaps even all) documents on the course. very valuable to us.

Known problems

Some forms (e.g. on SG) have little TEXTAREA boxes and this makes the formatting very nasty. Also, some forms send other characters (I think VAX does) for CR. So if the output looks nasty, we'll try to code round it.

The third assignment was `~!@#$%^&*()_-+=\{[\}]:;"'<,>.?/|%5C (That was a test!)

We need an overview of phi-psi calculation to be included in the protein geometry section. What WWW sources can help with this? What other methods do you recommend?

Thanks very much Jeremy. I have mailed the lists about this. Please keep posting here!

Added by: PeterMR on Thu Mar 16 09:57:08 GMT 1995 mentions methionine as the source of methyl groups in the methylation of the methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins. The actual donor is S-adenosylmethionine, in which the methyl group has been activated for transfer at the expense of ATP. Met + ATP --> S-adenosylmethionine + Pi + PPi

For anyone having problems with protein structure and on a Mac, Molview will produce Ramchandran plots and plota will give rest of the secondary structural calcs. I know plota is not well developed but so far it is the best free program I have found.

Is the program PROCHECK, mentioned in Assignment 4, available over the net?

I am slowly mastering the technology (eg finding rooms in BioMOO, finding the sources of data). As such I still have bits of assignments 1, 2 and 3 to finish off. However, the learning process is very worthwhile, both from the protein structure poit-of-view as well as finding the capabilities of the WWW. Hope to catch up soon.

I am still in. I just wish that my group was a bit more active. Other thatn that I lke the course and hope it will continue the way it did so far
