These examples presuppose that you
know the basic manipulation of the program; i.e. that you have already
read the user guide and completed the Basic
Tutorial prepared by Prof. Gale Rhodes (cf. below). If
you are interested, you are also invited to join the "Deep
View Discussion List" moderated by Gale Rhodes.
The best way to learn is by practising. Therefore, I
have provided some practical examples that you should read, not only because
I have spent so much time making them, but because they illustrate many
operations that you will probably have to use during your research.
You will need some PDB files to complete the tutorial. You can download
them all (except some electron density maps that are available from their
specific tutorial) in one operation:
If you wish to learn the basic manipulation of Swiss-PdbViewer
through a tutorial, I recommend that you have a look at the one prepared
by Prof. Gale Rhodes from the University of Southern Maine Portland.
has been prepared specifically for students and gives a lot of useful
information not only on Swiss-PdbViewer manipulation, but also on general
protein structure. As Prof. Gale Rhodes has spent a lot of time playing
with the program, some interesting tips and details missing from my main
documentation are unveiled.
