These self-guided workshops are tutorials intended to guide you through the use of various tools in the CSD-Materials suite by showing specific case studies and examples.

Prerequisites. Basic knowledge of Mercury. If you are new to Mercury, you can start with the Visualisation workshop (code: MER-001) available in the CSD-Core Workshops section of our educational resources or try the CSDU module Visualization 101 - Visualizing structural chemistry data with Mercury.

 

Tell us what you think! 

We hope you found these workshops helpful. As we aim to continuously improve our training materials, we would like to hear your feedback. You can do so by filling in the survey at this link. When asked, insert the workshop code that you find in the workshop description in this page. It will only take 5 minutes and your feedback is anonymous. Thank you!
