Coordinate Conversion Program
CONVERT: A Coordinate Conversion Program
This program is used to convert coordinate files both to and from the standard formats of this refinement package. It can perform any of the conversions in the following table.
As shown in the table Convert can produce a sequence file given a DIAMOND, DSN2, HENDRICKSON, or PDB format file. The sequence is inferred by a method that involves the CATEGORY, DANGLING, and CONNECT statements. The sequence file produced will have to be edited to handle unusual circumstances. This program does not change atom names to adapt to different naming conventions. However a file containing CHANGE commands which will correct most atom type problems is supplied. It is named $tntdata/pdb_fixup.dat
This program has several additional functions. It can alter the name of a variety of objects with the RENAME command (e.g. atoms, residues, chains). It can change the type of an atom, residue, or chain with the CHANGE command. It can add a particular value to all the temperature factors or occupancies of the model or add a vector to the positional parameters with the ADD command. And it can add a random quantity with specified variance to any of these parameters with the JIGGLE command.
