Map set

Map_set created this consensus volume representation of aligned ligands bound to kinases. See example below.

Map_set provides a number of common operations on and between maps. For example, with Map_set you can add two maps together or create a consensus map from a series of maps or even take a difference map.


map_set name, operator, operands, target_state, source_state

operator may be,

  • average
  • copy
  • difference
  • maximum
  • minimum
  • sum
  • unique


# add 3 maps
map_set my_sum, sum, map1 map2 map3

# calculate the average map
map_set my_avg, average, map1 map2 map3

Detailed Example

This example shows you how to create a consensus map of the bound ligand in a conserved pocket.

<source lang="python">

  1. fetch some similar proteins from the PDB

fetch 1oky 1h1w 1okz 1uu3 1uu7 1uu8 1uu9 1uvr, async=0

  1. align them all to 1oky; their ligands
  2. should all now be aligned
