Example Scripts
Copy and edit to start using Phaser
Tutorials
The tutorials are suitable for individual use or class teaching.
Phubuntu
Phubuntu is an Ubuntu Linux boot iso file is available from Phenix
This method of installation is very useful for running tutorials/workshops with participants using their own laptops as it circumvents the problems associated participants having heterogeneous operating systems and different Phenix versions installed
Burn this file to a DVD and use it to boot your computer and run Phenix and Coot
More information on Phubuntu
Coot script for Normal Mode Analysis - Perturbations (NMAXYZ)
To add a button to Coot to convert all loaded molecules to CA representation (C-alphas/backbone in the Display Manager) put the following script (called e.g. all-to-ca.py) in your .coot-preferences directory. Jiffy courtesy of Paul Emsley.
 def all_molecules_to_CA():
   for imol in model_molecule_list():
       graphics_to_ca_representation(imol)
 coot_toolbar_button("CA", "all_molecules_to_CA()", icon_name="6-c.svg")
 coot_toolbar_button("pre-CA", "set_default_representation_type(4)",icon_name="5-c.svg")


Data
The coordinate (pdb), sequence (fasta) and reflection (mtz) files required to run the MR tutorials are distributed with Phaser.
