How can I get B factor value of a specific amino acid of a protein sequence, from DSSP?

https://swift.cmbi.umcn.nl/gv/dssp/

It seems no functions/buttons that could generate the B-factor value from the website.

If it doesn't work, are there some other tools for collecting B factor values given a protein sequence?

Thanks!

You need a PDB structure file to extract B factors, as protein sequences do not contain that information.

Individual amino-acids don't have B factors, but you can calculate them as an average of B factors of all atoms that belong to that residue. B factors are stored in columns 61-66 of PDB files. If you don't want to count, that would be the last numerical column in the printout below (values 15.74, 15.48, etc). Averaging their sum would give you a B factor for this MET residue.
