Module ResidueDepth'

source code

Calculation of residue depth using command line tool MSMS.

This module uses Michel Sanner's MSMS program for the surface calculation (specifically commands msms and pdb_to_xyzr). See:

Residue depth is the average distance of the atoms of a residue from the solvent accessible surface.

Residue Depth:

>>> rd = ResidueDepth(model, pdb_file)
>>> print(rd[(chain_id, res_id)])

Direct MSMS interface, typical use:

>>> surface = get_surface("1FAT.pdb")

The surface is a Numeric array with all the surface vertices.

Distance to surface:

>>> dist = min_dist(coord, surface)

where coord is the coord of an atom within the volume bound by the surface (ie. atom depth).

To calculate the residue depth (average atom depth of the atoms in a residue):

>>> rd = residue_depth(residue, surface)
