Protein Structure Software

Dr. Andrew C.R. Martin has written various programs and libraries for both general applicability and for use with protein structure. Here are the listings for programs:

  • Torsions -- A C program for calculating phi, psi and omega torsions and C-alpha pseudo-torsions.
  • ProFit -- Designed to be the ultimate(?) protein least squares fitting program.
  • QTree -- A program for generating CPK, Ball and Stick and worms pictures of molecules using the quad-tree algorithm.
  • MINT -- A graphical user interface to Andrej Sali's Modeller program.
  • Cluster -- A program for performing cluster analysis on an arbitrary set of vectors.
  • cdoc -- automatic generation of HTML documentation of C source code.
The author also developed an extensive library of C routines for the manipulation of protein structures. The routines are extensively documented within the code, but no separate documentation is currently available. The routines include reading and writing of PDB and CSSR files, rotation, translation, resequencing, calculations, fitting, adding hydrogens, ordering, sequence reading and alignment, etc., etc.
