MODELLER is a homology modelling software that creates model 3D-structures from input sequences and templates structures. It uses python as its front end, and can be made available as a python module for use in work flows.

The website linked contained 5 tutorials of increasing complexity maintained by Ben Webb for the authors, with ready-to-go scripts coupled with analyses. Useful for people who want to practice reading and modifying python, particularly if they have their own protein sequences to adapt the scripts into, for a comparative exercise.
