Description

This script calculates the true center-of-mass (COM) or the center-of-geometry (COG) for a given selection and returns the x, y, z values in the form of a Pseudoatom (rather than a CGO sphere). The benefit of using a Pseudoatom is that it can be selected and used in calculations. In addition, this script also iteratively goes through all states of a selection if more than one state exists and appends the corresponding COM/COG values as states into the Pseudoatom. The script itself is quite simple yet robust enough to be applied in different settings. As well, the calculation of the COM/COG is handled independently from the formation of the Pseudoatom and can be called as an independent function where applicable.

Usage

com selection [,state=None [,mass=None [,name=None]]]


Examples

fetch 1c3y, finish=1, multiplex=0

com 1c3y, state=1
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COG and store it as "1c3y_COM"
#The "1c3y_COM" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, state=1, name=COG
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COG and store it as "COG"
#The "COG" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, state=1, name=COM, mass=1
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COM and store it as "COM"
#The "COM" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, name=COM, mass=1
#Create a single pseudoatom containing the COM for each state found in 1c3y and store it as "COM"
#The "COM" object will contain MULTIPLE states!

Previous Implementation

Here is a script that calculates the center of geometry from a selection. It gets hold of the coordinates with cmd.get_model. Make sure the atoms in the selection are of equal weight.

For a sample application, see: "Convergent Evolution Examples"

## Author: Andreas Henschel 2006

from pymol import cmd
from pymol.cgo import *

def centerOfMass(selection):
   ## assumes equal weights (best called with "and name ca" suffix)
   model = cmd.get_model(selection)
   x,y,z=0,0,0
   for a in model.atom:
       x+= a.coord[0]
       y+= a.coord[1]
       z+= a.coord[2]
   return (x/len(model.atom), y/len(model.atom), z/len(model.atom))

cmd.load("/group/bioinf/Data/PDBLinks/1c7c.pdb")
cmd.select("domain", "/1c7c//A/143-283/ and name ca") ## selecting a domain

domainCenter=centerOfMass("domain")

print "Center of mass: (%.1f,%.1f,%.1f)"% domainCenter
cmd.as("cartoon", "all")
cmd.show("spheres", "domain")

## Creating a sphere CGO
com = [COLOR, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, SPHERE]+list(domainCenter) + [3.0] ## white sphere with 3A radius
cmd.load_cgo(com, "CoM")

cmd.zoom("1c7c", 1.0)
cmd.center("domain")
