UCSF Chimera Tutorials
A collections of Video tutorials for using UCSF Chimera for:
1: Loading PDB coordinates into the software, manipulating the structure in 3D, and saving session.
3: Selecting parts of a protein structure
4: Analyzing and exploring a protein structure
5: Comparing the structures of two related proteins/domains and visualizing the superposed structures of these proteins/domains.
The RCSB Protein Data Bank provides access to 3D structures of biological macromolecules (proteins, DNA, RNA and their various complexes), along with tools and resources for their visualization, exploration, analysis, and comparison. The presentation on Monday (Jul 24, 2017) will focus on the double helical model of DNA - how was this determined? what does it tell us about the functions of DNA and molecules that interact with it? how has it helped us design new molecules?
An accompanying exercise guides you through hands-on exploration of data from the RCSB PDBusing the UCSF Chimera software. Explore the PDB-101 website for a variety of educational materials related to protein structures. Also check out the curricular modules available for use.
