Dear Consortium Members and Affiliates,
Happy New Year! We have a lovely software update planned for later today, and two exciting webinars in the coming weeks. Press on, gentle reader and be rewarded with knowledge!
We are launching a new webinar series - SBGrid Science on the Edge - in which we will highlight recent publications or exciting new data from within the SBGrid community. The inaugural webinar, featuring Seth Darst from Rockefeller University, will take place Monday, February 13th at 4:00pm EST. Seth will discuss his new Cell publication: Structural Basis for Promoter - 10 Element Recognition by the Bacterial RNA Polymerase σ Subunit.
Our February Tea Break will highlight the Collaborative Computing Project for NMR (CCPN) with a webinar presented by Tim Stevens, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge. Please join us on Monday, February 27th at 10:00am EST for this 30-minute presentation.
Please note we are changing the time for our usual Monday broadcast since Tim will present from the UK.
It's been real.
We had four new members join us over the holidays.
Gil Privé is our newest member from the University of Toronto.
Welcome to all of our new members!
The following software updates will be available later tonight or tomorrow:
Linux and Mac OS X Intel
PHENIX nightly version dev-961 has been added to the software tree. This nightly version includes two new GUIs, a new PHASER version and other improvements.
CCP4mg has been updated to version 2.5.1. This release contains some major improvements including better performance and a number of crashing bugs fixed resulting in greater stability. The full release notes are in Stuart McNicholas' release announcement email on the CCP4bb.
DOCK has been updated to version 6.5. There is a manual, FAQ and more on the DOCK website.
DSSP has been updated to release 20110411. The developers don't want to release an OS X version just yet.
The last PHENIX update had a number of bugs filed against it for sites not using the same NFS path that we are using in our development environment. Some changes made to the PHENIX installer accidentally decreased its portability. The PHENIX developers quickly resolved the issue, and we updated all installations with the fixed version.
