Dangle 0.63 – Read PDB File & Generate Geometric Measurement Table

Dangle 0.63


Dangle an updated and more general version of our program Dang in that it reads coordinates from a Protein DataBank (PDB) coordinate file for either protein or nucleic acid and generates geometric measurements for each residue. It is different from Dang in that Dangle: is Java-based, includes the capability of reporting deviations from ideal geometry as well as measurement values, and has a very flexible input syntax for specified the measurements desired. Dangle output is given as colon-delimited values, one line per residue. It is designed for facile use in scripts, and is the usual source of input for Suitename, either to generate the data for MolProbity’s multi-criterion table or in individual command-line use.
