Daylight is pleased to offer to our licensees a 3-day introductory course on Daylight software and theory.

SYNOPSIS: The three main units of the course will be (1) Languages and Applications, (2) Database Administration, and (3) Toolkit Programming. These units will correspond to the three days of the course. Students not wishing to attend all three sessions may pursue a self-study option by special arrangement.

AUDIENCE: The course will be designed for Daylight novices, although basic knowledge of unix, and for toolkit programming, a programming language, is expected.

FORMAT: Classes will be divided into lecture and lab time. Students will be assigned hands-on practice to reinforce each lesson. There will also be plenty of opportunity for experimentation and study based on students' specific needs and interests.

COURSE OUTLINE: A general outline of the course follows:

  1. Daylight Basics
  2. Daylight Administration
  3. Daylight Toolkits

LEARNING OUTCOMES: After completing this course, students should have a basic understanding of the languages and algorithms used in the Daylight Chemical Information System, and a practical knowledge of the applications available to accomplish a wide range of tasks. The Administration Unit should provide a working knowledge of designing, creating and managing molecule and reaction databases, including ways to make these tasks more convenient and reliable. The Toolkit Unit should give students an understanding of the object-oriented approach to Daylight Toolkit programming, some familiarity with the library of toolkit functions and how they are organized and the library of existing contributed source code, and experience in developing and debugging an original program.

INSTRUCTORS: The course will be taught by members of the Daylight technical staff.
