RNA Journal Covers
« on: July 28, 2020, 02:55:31 pm »
Ha just found this http://docs.x3dna.org/images/3dna-RNA-covers.png
Thank you Xiang-Jun for collating all of the 2019 journal covers I had created using X3DNA/blocview with pymol.
I have been testing out x3dna-dssr --cartoon-block today and it is much easier!
I will be using this great new option for all future NDB requests for covers.  :)

Hi Cathy,

Thanks for producing all these RNA Journal cover images using 3DNA/blocview and PyMOL; they look nice. In addition to the post on 2019 covers, I also have an update post for 2020, see http://x3dna.org/highlights/cover-images-of-the-rna-journal-in-2020 and the image below. This post is already a bit dated since it does not include the cover of the August 2020 issue.


I am so glad to know that you have found the DSSR-PyMOL approach much easier to use, and producing better schematics. In addition to the --cartoon-block option you mentioned, users may also want to try the --blocview option. It is the option used for pre-calculated results of PDB entries in http://skmatic.x3dna.org.

For viewers of this thread, I'd say that the supplemental PDF is well worth reading. In concluding the DSSR-PyMOL paper, I wrote specifically:

Finally, all results reported here are completely reproduceable (see the supplemental PDF). Any questions related to this work are welcome and will be openly addressed on the 3DNA Forum (http://forum.x3dna.org).

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun
