about mrbump
About MrBUMP
  • Molecular Replacement with Bulk Model Preparation
  • Given an initial sequence and the structure factor data it seeks out the best search models for use in Molecular Replacement and tries as many as possible in order to find the best solution.
  • In simple case the pipeline replicates what crystallographers might do and its value is simply one of convenience.
  • In more difficult cases, the pipeline aims to discover the particular template structure and model edits required to produce a viable search model and may succeed in finding an efficacious combination that would be missed otherwise.

About MrBUMP
  • MrBUMP CCP4i interface.
  • Users can control many of the parameters in the pipeline but most options come with sensible default values.
  • MrBUMP can make use of both Phaser and Molrep for the MR stage.
  • Refmac also used to refine output models from MR.
  • Other programs used: Chainsaw, Pdbcur, Pdbset, Acorn, PISA.
  • MrBUMP to be included in CCP4 6.1.
integration with ccp4i dbhandler
Integration with CCP4i DBhandler
  • DBhandler and Viewer
    • Working in collaboration with Wendy and Peter.
    • MrBUMP act as a testbed for trial release of DBhandler and to help in its development.
    • Through the DBhandler python client API MrBUMP deposits its job data in the handler database.
    • Users can then use the DBviewer to view the progress of the MrBUMP job
    • Viewer allows for quick and easy access to any input, output or log files generated.
    • Aids user in coming to a decision about the best result from MR and refinement.
Model generation only mode
    • This option allows users to just generate models without running the molecular replacement step.
    • Users can then pick and choose which models they want to put through MR.
  • MR only mode
    • Picks up models from a previously run “Models Only” job.
    • Idea is to allow for manual inspection and altering of the models should the user desire.
    • Users can enter pre-determined fixed component(s) for the MR step. This is then passed into Phaser and/or Molrep.
    • This is a first step towards a fully automated mechanism for handling complexes.
Downloading of PDB files.
    • Some users, particularly those with slow internet connections found that it was taking a long time to retrieve PDB files from the internet.
    • Some changes have been made to minimize this problem.
    • Search to automatically determine the closest PDB server (EBI, RCSB, Japan)
    • Users can specify a local directory where PDB files can be found.
    • Any files downloaded are saved so that future runs can use them.
Other new features:
    • MrBUMP now runs on Windows. There is a separate installer available for Windows on the downloads site.
    • Users can enter a proxy server if they require one to access the internet.
    • Internet connectivity test added.
    • RMS values for input PDB files can be specified.
    • CCP4 Cluster is used to run a set of tests on the latest CVS version of MrBUMP each week.
    • Set of examples (known structures) are used to test each component of the pipeline.
    • Results are reported by email each week.
    • Currently success or failure is pointed out.
    • Future versions will give more detail.
    • Mechanism can also be used for parameter space testing to help improve the success rate of the pipeline.
future plans
Future Plans
  • Switch from PQS to using PISA for generating multimer models.
  • Fully automated complex search.
  • Incorporate Pirate/Buccaneer. Make use of ccp4_pipeline_simple to cycle Buccaneer and Refmac for model building.
  • Allow for unlimited number of ensembles to be used as search models in MR.
  • Look at using Rapper for creating ensembles and rebuilding.
  • Improved model preparation, e.g. removal of flexible loops from search models
  • Automatic update mechanism.
  • Tie-in with Balbes.
