Some time ago I set up an on-line cheminformatics tutorial based on the "Try Python" software of Michael Foord (see my blog post for details).
When a reader mentioned in passing that he found this tutorial useful for introducing people to cheminformatics concepts, it made me realise that it might actually be useful for something. And so, when I had to put together a practical on the subject of Cheminformatics a few weeks ago, I decided to use this tutorial as the basis. I had the students go through the tutorial and answer a series of questions based around each of the three main chapters (Introduction to Cinfony, Descriptors, and Fingerprints).
Does anyone have any suggestions for other cheminformatics practicals?
Notes: This is Windows and Mac only. "Try Python" should (but does not) run on Linux under Moonlight. The problem was reported to the Moonlight devs back in 2009.
