Generate a preview file from old (pre-mandatory CS) ADIT-NMR session

VM image of the old ADIT-NMR server is batfish.img/batfish.xml. To retrieve a session it's enough to mount the .img, copy the files, then convert the Table-db.odb file to NMR-STAR using ADIT-NMR tools.


Loopback mount:

losetup /dev/loop0 batfish.img
kpartx -a /dev/loop0
mount /dev/mapper/loop0p1 /mnt

When done, umount /mnt and losetup -d /dev/loop0.

Generate NMR-STAR file

Find the session directory or tarball under /mnt/…/adit/sessions. Metadata is in the Table-db.odb file.

  1. use cig-bin/bmrb-adit/obj2cif program to convert it to NMRIF,
  2. follow the usual conversion & post-processing steps to generate an NMR-STAR file.

Upload into new deposition system

As of the time of this writing the instructions were on the deposit-beta server. They may (should) be on the by now, try
