CS ROSETTA is a protocol which generates 3D models of proteins, using only the 13CA, 13CB, 13C', 15N, 1HA and 1HN NMR chemical shifts as input. Based on these parameters, CS ROSETTA uses a SPARTA-based selection procedure to select a set of fragments from a fragment-library (where the chemical shifts and the 3D structure of the fragments are known). The fragments are assembled using the ROSETTA protocol. The generated models are rescored based on the difference between the back-calculated chemical shifts of the generated models and the input chemical shifts. For more information see our WeNMR CS-Rosetta online manual and tutorial and/or consult the CS-Rosetta home page at: http://spin.niddk.nih.gov/bax/software/CSROSETTA/index.html.
Webserver user manual and tutorial
CS ROSETTA webserver
REGISTRATION: The use of the CS ROSETTA WeNMR GRID-enabled docking server is free for academic users. Access to the server is managed through Single Sign On (SSO) authentication using your WeNMR account. Old style CS ROSETTA web server accounts are still supported. How to proceed:

  1. Become a member of the WeNMR Virtual Research Community at www.wenmr.eu
  2. Once logged in, go to the "My Services" tab in your account profile and subscribe to the CS ROSETTA web portal. Follow the instructions on screen. CS ROSETTA requires a valid X509 Grid certificate as explained below
  3. You have to be in possession of a valid X509 personal certificate that proves you are allowed to run calculations on the GRID and a membership of the eNMR Virtual Organization. If you do not yet have one you can find information on how to obtain a certificate here
  4. Once you are a member of the WeNMR VRC it is easy to subscribe to the many services WeNMR has to offer.

IMPORTANT: Before submitting any run to the CS-Rosetta web server it is strongly advised to remove any flexible tail and check the chemical shifts for outliers using TALOS+
Setup your CS-Rosetta run
