Extracting first and last residue from helix file in DSSP format.

Extracting first and last residue from helix file in DSSP format.

Previously, we have provided a tutorial on using dssp_parser to extract all helices including long and short separately. Now, we have provided a new python script to find the first and last residue in each helix file.

You can extract these residues using the “start_end_helix_res.py” file. This file is provided in the package. Download the dssp_parser package from our GitHub account.

Usage:

The input files are long helices files that are obtained from parsing the initial dssp files of PDB structures. The output is a CSV file containing the helix name, start residue, and end residue of each file. Run the script as shown below:

$ python3 start_end_helix_res.py

How to extract x,y,z coordinates of atoms from PDB file?

The x, y, and z coordinates of atoms are provided in the PDB file. One way to extract them is by using the Biopython package [1]. In this article, we will extract coordinates of C-alpha atoms for each residue from the PDB file using Biopython. (more…)
