Usage

usage:   loopModel.pl [options] [PDBfile]
options:              [-loop inx:sequence[:secstr][=inx:sequence[:secstr]]]

Description

This script uses Modeller to build missing loops in a given PDB structure.

The script will try to guess the location of the Modeller script but it is better to provide the location with the environment variable MODELLEREXEC.

The output from the file is a series of files named model.N.pdb depending on how many models are requested and a list of energies on standard output with the Modeller scores for each file.

Options

-help 
usage information
-loop [chain]inx:sequence[:secstr][=...] 
provide information on which residues to model and optionally provide secondary structure information
-models number 
number of models to be generated
