Split_States splits and orients multiple models and multimers from the biological unit file into a set of single-state molecular objects.


split_states object [, first [, last [, prefix ]]]

This splits the object from first to last out to the array of objects prefixed by prefix. The prefix option is very handy if all your states--or a subset of the states--have the same name.


To use split_states simply Load your molecule

# example usage
load fileName.pdb1, name
split_states name
delete name

# split all the states to objects starting with conf
fetch 1nmr
split_states 1nmr, prefix=conf


1VLS: A dimer.

load 1vls.pdb1, 1vls
split_states 1vls
dele 1vls
