Given an object, a reference amino acid and a radius, this scripts calculates pairwise distances between atom(s) in the reference and all atoms that fall within the given range.

The script is intended to provide a range of useful tools while requiring minimal coding skills (i.e. it is not optimised for efficiency).

By changing input parameters it is possible to:

  • choose the output (none, on screen, on file)
  • measure distances from one single atom
  • display distance objects in pymol
  • restrict distances between hydrogen-bond forming atoms only

The script also runs a number of controls to verify that inputs and outputs exists/are suitable.


distancesRH obj, ref, dist, [chain, [output S/P/N, [show Y/N, [Hbonds Y/N, [aname]]]]]
