From CCP4 wiki
no edit summary
This [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/ CCP4] user community wiki ("CCP4 wiki" in short) is meant to be a collection of crystallographic knowledge as discussed on the [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/ccp4bb.php CCP4 mailing list] (CCP4BB), and elsewhere. It may contain information about anything relevant to protein crystallographers, whether methods-related ("what is the best program for purpose X?"), problem-oriented ("my crystals melt if I look at them"), or concerning hardware ("what is your opinion on robot X / computer Y?").
general [[Topics]] include articles about [[Expression_and_Purification| protein expression and purification]],
[[Crystals| crystal growth, handling and data collection]],[[Crystallography| crystallographic theory and practice]],
and crystal structure related [[Bioinformatics|bioinformatics]] and [[Xtal_computing|computer-related issues]]. There are also announcements for [[Positions|open positions]], [[Courses and Conferences|courses and conferences]] and a [[FAQ|FAQ]].

April 04, 2008: transparent inter-wiki linking is now very easy due to an extension called "[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Special_page_to_work_with_the_interwiki_table SpecialInterwiki]". These links appear like internal links (see the next sentences!), and can point to subsections of an article, or to figures (untested!). This also means that if a wiki changes its DNS name, only a single inter-wiki link has to be updated.
Currently, the [[ccp4dev:Main_Page|CCP4 developers' wiki]], the [[xds:Main_Page|XDSwiki]] and (as of May 02, 2008) the [[iucr:Main_Page|IUCr Online Dictionary of Crystallography]] are in the [[Special:Interwiki|Inter-Wiki table]].
[[CCP4]] is a crystallographic program system, and can be downloaded from [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/download.php].
It is free for academic use; the license is at [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/ccp4license.php].
Documentation is in the [[ccp4dev:Main_Page|CCP4 developers' wiki]] and at [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/docs.php], and a mailing list (CCP4BB) is at [http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/ccp4bb.php] that can also be viewed [http://email@example.com/ here].
