Initial Steps

  1.  Read our lab's agreement. Let ParisaH know if you have any questions about any part or have any suggestions and additions. This is a living document.

  2. Familiarize yourself with basics of protein biochemistry and protein design. Checkout suggested readings in scientific resources.

  3. Familiarize yourself with basics of bash and python scripting as well as basics of Rosetta scripts. Check videos and chapters in scientific resources.

  4. Know our biosafety and ethics rules (coming soon).
