Today I used both MOE and LaTeX together to show my mentor that I was able to use it properly. I had to download a leucine transporter molecule with a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) on to MOE so that I could locate the binding pocket, or active site for the TCA. After locating the ligand on the molecule, I had to display it and then save the file as a picture. Next I had to use LaTeX and upload the picture of the molecule from MOE to a LaTeX file. After showing my mentor the picture, I realized that I had the wrong binding pocket. So after the meeting I had at 12:00, where I watched undergraduate students present their project, I had to MOE again to find the correct binding pocket.
When I finally had the right bonding pocket, I had to use LaTeX again to upload the picture, but this time instead of using a format of an article, I had to us beamer, which is a type of format similar to a powerpoint. There I used everything I learned from the past few days about LaTeX put it into one small powerpoint. I got to learn how MOE and LaTeX could be used for one another, one would project the information while the other could be turn that information into a document.
