Creating Strip Plots

Creating Strip Plots

Manually

You can add strips to your Spectrum Display manually by clicking on the + button in the toolbar. - will remove them again - see our Working with Strips tutorial for more information on the basics of using strips in AnalysisAssign V3.

Automatically from peaks

Select peaks belonging to your 2D base spectrum (typically a 1H-15N HSQC or 1H-13C HMQC spectrum), either directly in the spectrum or in the peak table, and then type SP or in the menus go to Spectrum / Make Strip Plot.... The pop-up will allow you to select the Spectrum Display(s) in which you want to display your strips, then select the use peak selection option and click on Okay. The strips will be plotted in the Spectrum Display of your choice and headers at the top of each strip will contain the Peak PID, so you know which peak the strip has been derived from.

Automatically from NmrResidues

Select one or more NmrResidues in any NmrResidue table. This could be the NmrResidue table in the Pick and Assign or Backbone Assignment modules, or it could be a straightforward NmrResidue table you bring up with NT or by going to View / NmrResidue Table. Then type SP or in the menus go to Spectrum / Make Strip Plot.... The pop-up will allow you to select the Spectrum Display(s) in which you want to display your strips, then select the use NmrResidue selection option and click on Okay. The strips will be plotted in the Spectrum Display of your choice and headers at the top of each strip will contain the NmrResidue PID, so you know which NmrResidue the strip has been derived from.

Automatically from NmrChains

Type SP or in the menus go to Spectrum / Make Strip Plot.... The pop-up will allow you to select the Spectrum Display(s) in which you want to display your strips, then select the use NmrChain selection option and select the NmrChain of your choice using the drop-down menu. Click on Okay. The strips will be plotted in the Spectrum Display of your choice and headers at the top of each strip will contain the NmrResidue PID, so you know which NmrResidue and NmrChain the strip has been derived from.

Automatically using NmrAtoms from selected peaks

This is not typically an option you will need to use very much. But occasionally it is useful, e.g. in making strips from a 2D homonuclear spectrum (e.g. CC or HH) when you might find that the axes are matched the wrong way round if you use the use selected peaks option. Select peaks belonging to your base spectrum (e.g. 2D CC spectrum), either directly in the spectrum or in the peak table, and then type SP or in the menus go to Spectrum / Make Strip Plot.... The pop-up will allow you to select the Spectrum Display(s) in which you want to display your strips, then select the use NmrAtoms from peak selection option and click on Okay. The strips will be plotted in the Spectrum Display of your choice and headers at the top of each strip will contain the NmrResidue PID, so you know which NmrResidue the strip has been derived from.
