Question/Help: How are PDB Coordinates configured in 3-D through IonCom?

Post by bwong46 »

To Whom It May Concern,

I recently used the IonCom program for a research project that I have been working on with my colleagues. We input a linear protein sequence into the program and using the pdb file output we were able to view a 3-D configuration of the protein through Chimera. Can someone explain the coding that was used to achieve a 3-D output sequence from a linear input?

Thanks.

I-TASSER (https://zhanglab.dcmb.med.umich.edu/I-TASSER/) is used to build 3D models for IonCom. You may reference the IonCom paper for more information (https://zhanglab.dcmb.med.umich.edu/papers/2016_9.pdf).
