We’ve added a feature that allows you to superpose structures on top of one another over a specific region of interest. This is useful for comparing regions of interest after running an Action that alters the protein backbone.
- Once you have run your Action, set the poses you’d like to superpose to “visible”.
- Open the sequence viewer, and make a selection spanning more than one structure.
- Each structure must have the exactly the same sequence over the selected region in order to superpose by atom (otherwise the atoms are not identical), and must have the same number of positions selected in order to superpose by backbone.
- Once you’ve made your selection, press the ‘Superpose’ button on the top of the protein viewer. Depending on which of the above criteria are fulfilled, you will see the option to superpose by ‘Selected atoms’ or by ‘Selected backbone atoms’.
