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?").
== Some Page Reorganization to make it less hierarchical is UnderWay The topics (side bar) 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- Please Excuse usrelated issues]]. There are also announcements for [[Positions|open positions]], ==[[Courses and Conferences|courses and conferences]] and a [[FAQ|FAQ]].
Many interesting questions are currently being answered on CCP4BB, but the answers are not easily accessible for others after some time. The intention is that the wiki reflect the breadth of topics on CCP4BB, which will make it a useful resource e.g. for "frequently asked questions", offloading some of the question/answer traffic on CCP4BB to a more permanent mode of storage. A wiki has the additional advantage that mathematical formulas and images may be presented nicely.

*Feb 13Nov 30, 20082011: I've Due to the amount of spam created a search plugin for the wiki that will add a search , we had to the dropstop self-down list of search engines in the topservice account creation -right corner of Firefox send us a personal email (versions >= 2karsten. schaefer at uni-konstanz.0 only) (de, or even, I believe, IE7 if anyone is using it)kay. It can be found here: [http://tinyurldiederichs at uni-konstanz.com/2v9oyo CCP4 wiki search plugin]de) and we'll open account creation for you.

*Feb 10April 04, 2008: The [[COOT]] transparent inter-wiki linking is now very easy due to an extension called "[http://xananawww.ucscmediawiki.edu/~wgscott/xtalorg/wiki/indexExtension: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!).php/Coot was moved from This also means that if a wiki changes its old home] DNS name, only a single inter-wiki link has to this 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]]. Old news may be found [[Old_news|here]]. Thanks a lot, Bill!
== What is CCP4? ==
[[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://www.mail-archive.com/ccp4bb@jiscmail.ac.uk/ here] or [https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=ccp4bb here].
