First week of coding!#
Welcome to the second weekly check-in. I’ll be sharing my progress for the first week of coding.
What did you do this week?#
I implemented the space filling model for proteins and created a PR for the same. Preview:
The PR has:
Actor for space_filling_model.
Two examples where I show how to visualize the proteins:
In example 1, I parse a PDBx file myself and extract the atomic info essential for constructing the model which is then used by the actor to visualize it.
I created a basic test for the actor which needs to be improved. I’ll discuss how to improve the test with the mentors.
What is coming up next week?#
I have two major goals for the next week:
Make an actor for the space filling model of the proteins and make PR for the same which will also include the unit tests and a small tutorial for the users.
Try to understand the documentation of vtkProteinRibbonFilter which will prove beneficial in generating Ribbon diagrams.
Did you get stuck anywhere?#
I tried to create a class in python which inherits from a vtk class called vtkMoleculeReaderBase but was unsuccessful in this endeavour. I’ll try to find a workaround.
