This hands-on workshop will demonstrate an R add-on package RBMRB that provides an interface to "The Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank" (BMRB, www.bmrb.wisc.edu) database. The pacakge offers easy data access and includes a minimal set of data visualization functions. NOTE: familiarity with R can be acquired with the workshop "Introduction to R" on 02/20/18. BMRB collects, annotates, archives, and disseminates (worldwide in the public domain) the important spectral and quantitative data derived from NMR spectroscopic investigations of biological macromolecules and metabolites. The goal is to empower scientists in their analysis of the structure, dynamics, and chemistry of biological systems and to support further development of the field of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy.
