DESCRIPTION

This is a toolkit for rapidly inspecting multiple maps and models. The right & left arrow keys navigate sequentially through the amino acid chain, but alternating between two structures (could be NCS-related chains or models solved in different space groups). Each view is rendered in a consistent orientation (the default is centered on alpha carbon, with nitrogen right, carbonyl left & beta carbon up). The view can be customized. It is necessary to edit the script to define the behavior for the problem at hand.

INSTALLATION

Three components are needed:

  • A Python module, support.py, giving matrix algebra & Kabsch-style structure alignment. This module must be in the current working directory, and PyMol started from the command line, e.g., on MacOSX:
/Applications/MacPyMol.app/Contents/MacOS/MacPyMOL
