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.
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
