Add H, calculate contacts, and assess geometry by running the MolProbity web service.

2. Rebuilding in KiNG

Local backbone adjustments using KiNG.

3. All-atom Contact Tools in Coot

Rebuilding with all-atom contact analysis along with rotamer selection in Coot.

4. Further exercises

Try one or more of these.
