Hi Xiangjun,

Just to let you know that the web access to the X3DNA (env problem) had been solved. And I made some small progress on the web project:

http://dnaserver.rutgers.edu/~ghzheng/w3dnadev/

There, analyzing a pdb structure with a valid ID is mostly working except for the data grids (check the download section).
As a start, rebuilding a simple fiber functions.
Many of links on the webpage just don't work and still under construction.

Here, I am writing to ask you for designing a logo for our web server. As you see, I made a temporary log on the front page, but I don't think it looks beautiful. You have a lot of experience of creating fancy pictures. Could you please make one or give some idea? Thanks.

And any suggestion on the further development?

Guohui

Hi Guohui,

Good progress!

Try to finish 'fiber' model building first, as suggested earlier. Present the user with a full-list of available models (55), and based on selected model number, ask for sequence or just repeating unit. It is fine to have the most common A-, B-, C- and Z- (not D-, or with D-) form at the top.

I am not a designer either -- in the 3DNA forum, I have been asking for user's contributions. Until very recently have I updated the 3DNA forum logo. But honestly, I do not like the one you currently post there. I have created an alternative as attached here, which has a transparent background.

For 'analyze', you could pre-build all available NDB entries. Thus when a NDB/PDB id is supplied, the results are immediately available.

Keep good work!

Hi Xiangjun,

Can you make a mini-version of the w3DNA_logo you made the other day? That would be used in subpages.
The size could be 50% weight 50% height of the original one.

Thanks.

Guohui

Hi Guohui,

Regarding the mini-version of the logo, you can simply use gimp or any other image processing tools to resize it. As I said before, I am really not an artist at all. The logo I gave you was produced with a web-based logo generator so take it as a placeholder: there is certainly better ways to get it done.
