Tutorial Details: Introduction to the CCP4 Program Suite

Date: Wednesday, October 1, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Can Erol Ergenekan, MSI

The CCP4 suite is a collection of programs used in most of the computations involved in protein x-ray crystallography. The package includes programs for data processing, molecular replacement, MIR, structure refinement, and validation, as well as a graphical user interface for most of the common programs.

This tutorial will give an overview of the suite and its use, as well as a detailed description of how to run the program here at MSI, including how to run some of the basic programs initially used in refining protein structures like Molrep and Refmac.

Prerequisites: Some knowledge of x-ray crystallography concepts would be useful
