Has anyone used the facility "Lego_auto_mc" in O (we have version
2.7) to build main chain atoms from alpha-carbon traces? If so - I do hope
this isn't really trivial, I have wasted a lot of time already - how do you
display (and write out) the main chain atoms after they're generated? It
seems to just flick through the various pentapeptides on the screen, then
they vanish and the console returns to the O> prompt. Selecting Yes does
nothing at all and when a new object is generated from the appropriate
residues it just contains the old alpha-carbon coordinates. The manual doesn't
suggest that you need a separate command at this point, but I've probably
missed something somewhere!
Thanks very much for your help. Please reply by email to
