pdb-tools

tools for manipulating and editing PDB files

Description

Manipulating PDB files is often painful. Extracting a particular chain or set of residues, renumbering residues, splitting or merging models and chains, or just ensuring the file is conforming to the PDB specifications are examples of tasks that can be done using any decent parsing library or graphical interface. These, however, almost always require 1) scripting knowledge, 2) time, and 3) installing one or more programs.

pdb-tools were designed to be a swiss-knife for the PDB format. They have no external dependencies, besides the Python programming language. They are the descendant of a set of old FORTRAN77 programs that had the particular advantage of working with streams, i.e. the output of one script could be piped into another.

The philosophy of the scripts is simple: one script, one task. If you want to do two things, pipe the scripts together.

This package contains the command line tools.
