Hi everyone! I'm looking for some help how to apply a rotation matrix to pdb file with perl script on ubuntu(linux)? Could you help me how to write a program? i'm not a bioinformatics student but i got that task and i really don't know how to do it. :( Thanks!!!!!
This page describing the script convpdb.pl might help. You can download the code from there (click "Show source"). I have not tested it.
The rotation matrix and PDB file are supplied as arguments to the script. For example, to rotate 180 degrees around the x-axis:
convpdb.pl -rotate 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 myfile.pdb
