Using PDB_REDO in COOT



Coot has native PDB_REDO interface which automatically downloads the fully optimised (re-refined and rebuilt) model plus the (anomalous) electron density maps and a list of buttons that highlights all the structural changes.

How to use the native COOT - PDB_REDO interface:

  1. Go to the "File" menu and click "Fetch PDB & Map using PDB_REDO...".
  2. Type the PDB id (in small letters) in the box. Click "Get it!"
  3. The new structure model and maps appear. You may need to center on an atom to get a good view of the structure model.
  4. Coot will also show a list of buttons that allow you to quickly inspect the changes PDB_REDO made to the model.
