Thursday PM Practical

Gorgon is an interactive molecular modeling system specifically geared towards near-atomic resolution density maps of macromolecular assemblies. It is being developed as a collaboration between Washington University in St. Louis (Tao Ju) and Baylor College of Medicine (Matthew Baker).

Gorgon currently provides the following feature categories:

For the workshop, we will use Gorgon to identify secondary structure elements identification, fit atomic models and trace the backbone of protein in a near-atomic resolution cryo-EM density map. Additionally, we will use Pathwalker, a new modeling tool available in EMAN2, to automatically trace a protein backbone.

Sample data can be downloaded here: WorkshopData.zip
