  1. Go to the SCOP Web site, also reachable by a Web search.
  2. Go to the top of the structural hierarchy and note the links to a more detailed classification of the protein structural classes. The first icon of the three shown for each class will be an image model that can be viewed by the browser.
  3. Follow the hierarchy to lower and lower levels, eventually reaching a link to a Protein Data Bank (PDB) entry. PDB files are large tables that give atomic coordinates of atoms in proteins and other information and may be downloaded and viewed as described below.
  4. There are a number of display programs for viewing PDB files. We will use Rasmol. Choose two PDB files for downloading and viewing by Rasmol. (Note that the PDB identification code is a combination of numbers and letters, e.g., 1gc1.)
