RCSB and RSC CICAG workshop on the PDB

 

For any scientists working with biomolecules be it, medicinal chemist, structural biologist, biochemist etc. the most valuable source of primary structural information is the Protein Data Bank (PDB). This resource has now been running for 50 years so it very timely to hear about the history of the RCSB PDB and the different components that make up the repository both from a depositor and a user. The second workshop describes some of the recent changes in particular the development of Mol* a 3D viewer capable of rendering from macromolecular assemblies down to atomic details.

Workshop 1

  • History of the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and the Worldwide PDB Stephen K. Burley, RCSB Protein Data Bank
  • PDBx/mmCIF Data Standard and PDB Data Deposition with OneDep Ezra Peisach and Jasmine Young
  • Small Molecules in the PDB -talk + tutorial Chenghua Shao, RCSB Protein Data Bank
  • OneDep Tutorial - Jasmine Young and Ezra Peisach

Workshop 2

  • wwPDB Validation: Assessing the Quality of PDB structures John Berrisford, Protein Data Bank in Europe
  • How to Interpret the Quality of a PDB Structure using the wwPDB validation report - tutorial David Armstrong/John Berrisford/Jack Turner, Protein Data Bank in Europe
  • 3D Visualisation of PDB Data with the Mol* viewer -James Tolchard, Protein Data Bank in Europe
  • Impact of AI and Future of PDB Data: Next Generation PDB Archive - Sameer Velankar, Protein Data Bank in Europe
  • Round Table Discussion - Sameer Velankar, Protein Data Bank in Europe, Stephen K. Burley, RCSB Protein Data Bank

RSC CICAG Open Source Tools workshop, PDB

 

Registration for the November RSC CICAG workshops is open https://www.eventbrite.com/e/open-source-tools-for-chemistry-workshops-tickets-156431429617. (#OpenChem21)

Given that it is the 50th anniversary of the PDB archive it is appropriate that the two final workshops for 2021 are describing this absolutely invaluable resource.

Protein Data Bank Workshop (16 November 2021 15.00 – 17.00 GMT)

The Protein Data Bank https://www.wwpdb.org archives information about the 3D shapes of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies that help students and researchers understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease. Open access PDB data are used by hundreds of data resources and millions of users exploring fundamental biology, energy, and biomedicine. The PDB is a vast resource and this workshop will be invaluable to anyone seeking to get full value from the PDB.

Mol* Workshop (18 November 2021 15.00 – 17.00 GMT)

Mol* is a modern web-based open-source toolkit for visualisation and analysis of large-scale molecular data. More information can be found here: https://molstar.org. High-performance graphics and data handling of the Mol* Viewer allow users to simultaneously visualise up to hundreds of (superimposed) protein structures, play molecular dynamics trajectories, render cell-level models at atomic detail with tens of millions of atoms, or display huge models obtained by I/HM such as the Nuclear Pore Complex.

David Sehnal, Sebastian Bittrich, Mandar Deshpande, Radka Svobodová, Karel Berka, Václav Bazgier, Sameer Velankar, Stephen K Burley, Jaroslav Koča, Alexander S Rose: Mol* Viewer: modern web app for 3D visualization and analysis of large biomolecular structures, Nucleic Acids Research, 2021; DOI.

KNIME workshop on clustering molecules

 

The latest RSC CICAG Open-Source Tools for Chemistry Workshop is now on YouTube. RSC CICAG Open Source Tools for Chemistry :- Clustering using KNIME.

Clustering is an invaluable cheminformatics technique for subdividing a typically large compound collection into small groups of similar compounds. One of the advantages is that once clustered you can store the cluster identifiers and then refer to them later, this is particularly valuable when dealing with very large datasets. Clustering is often used in the analysis of high-throughput screening results, or the analysis of virtual screening or docking studies.

knimeWorkshop

There is a comparison of clustering options here.

The previous 14 workshops are available on a CICAG YouTube playlist.

You can still register for next months workshops here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/open-source-tools-for-chemistry-workshops-tickets-156431429617.

RSC CICAG KNIME workshop materials

 

Just got this message from Greg Landrum

The workshop tomorrow will have a hands-on component. This isn't mandatory, but I think you'll get more from the workshop if you follow along with what we're doing in your own local copy of the workflow.

In order to get you started and make sure that you have all the KNIME pieces that you need installed, I created a space in the public KNIME hub for the workshop and have uploaded some introductory material there:

https://hub.knime.com/greglandrum/spaces/Public/latest/Presentations/2021/20211020RSCWorkshop/ClusteringIntro.

If you are logged into the KNIME hub (registration is free), you can download the workflow and data by simply using the download button:

KNIMEimage

Once you've downloaded the workflow package, you should be able to import everything into the KNIME Analytics Platform by double clicking the "ClusteringIntro.knar" file which is downloaded.

If for some reason you don't want to register, then you'll need to navigate to the page for the workflow and the Data folder, download everything individually, and import them into KNIME Analytics Platform manually. You should be able to find information online for how to do this, but I won't be able to help you with this during the workshop due to time constraints.

When you open the 01_Clustering workflow, you may be asked if you want to install missing extensions. Please do this in order to ensure that you have everything necessary to follow along during the workshop. Everything we install as part of this process is free and open source.

Shortly before the workshop starts I will share an additional workflow which we'll use for the main part of the workshop. I'll give you this link during the workshop.

Note that the sample workflows we are using were created with KNIME 4.4 (the version released this summer). For workshops like this we like to use recent versions of KNIME so that we can show you the newest features and capabilities. If you have an older version of KNIME things may or may not work correctly and you may have to replace one or more of the nodes with older equivalents.

You can download KNIME here https://www.knime.com/downloads

Discovering quantum-mechanical simulations with CRYSTAL

 

Save the dates. More details coming soon on this virtual workshop.

MSSC2021 - Ab initio Modelling in Solid State Chemistry
Virtual Edition (New Users)
Discovering quantum-mechanical simulations with CRYSTAL
London (UK time), September 20-24,2021
Directors: S. Casassa - A. Erba - N.M. Harrison - G. Mallia

The week long school is designed for new users of CRYSTAL, PhD students, Post-Docs and researchers with interests in solid state chemistry, physics, materials science, surface science, catalysis, magnetism and nano-science. It will provide an introduction to the capabilities of quantum mechanical simulations and to the practical use of CRYSTAL.

CRYSTAL is a general-purpose program for the study of periodic systems. The code may be used to perform consistent studies of the physical and chemical properties of crystalline solids, surfaces, polymers, nanotubes and molecules. The CRYSTAL program computes the electronic structure, structural features, vibrational, magnetic, dielectric (linear and non-linear electric susceptibilities up to forth-order), elastic, piezoelectric, photoelastic, thermodynamic (Quasi-Harmonic Approximation) and transport properties of periodic systems, within Hartree Fock, density functional or various hybrid approximations (global and range-separated hybrids).

CRYSTAL17 for Unix/Linux/MacOSX is supplied as binary executables or object files for a number of supported architectures. Precompiled executables include sequential (crystal, properties) and replicated data parallel version (Pcrystal). The massive parallel version (distributed memory, MPPcrystal) is only supplied as object files

Some pre-event details for the upcoming workshop

The workshop will be hands-on, so you'll get the most out of it if you have the most recent versions of the RDKit and the ChEMBL Structure Pipeline installed. You can download a conda environment specification here that will create a minimal environment which should have everything you need for the workshop. The conda environment uses python 3.7 since that's what's available on google colab, but you should also be able to use python 3.8 or 3.9 without problems; just change the python version spec in the environment file.

I'll be using a sample dataset from PubChem Substance: https://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubchem/Substance/CURRENT-Full/SDF/Substance000000001000500000.sdf.gz

If you have problems creating (or don't want to create) a local environment, I also created a notebook  in google colab which you can use. The cells at the beginning of this notebook install all required software and download the sample dataset: https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1p33LA610-8SS4p5-F1DrAlmB31T8F-KB?usp=sharing

Open-Source Tools for Chemistry Workshops

 

Over the years RSC CICAG have held workshops providing tuition for various software packages, because of the physical limitations these workshops had to be limited to around 50 attendees leaving us with a waiting list of folks who missed out. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the meetings have been moved online allowing much greater access. The recent Open Chemical Science workshops had attendees from 45 different countries. There was considerable interest in including further workshops and so CICAG have started a monthly workshop series, each month a workshop will be held highlighting a particular package/resource.

The first four workshops are now organised, you can register here. These look to be very popular with registrations already up to 150 for the first workshop, which is three-fold higher than we could have accommodated in a physical workshop.

There are four two-hour sessions in this series which will be run on Zoom.

Registration is free and you will be sent login details at a later date.
