DESCRIPTIONThis Geometry module is an implementation of the Ribbons Algorithm by Mike Carson. It inputs a Chemistry Pyramid, calculates guide coordinates, and outputs protein ribbons as either threads or sheets. The Chemistry Pyramid should only contain the peptide backbone atoms (groups of N, C-alpha, C and O) in the correct order of appearance in the chain.
The Chemistry Pyramid of correctly ordered backbone atoms.
Optional: This port is optional
Optional colourmap lattice. Default colour is white.
Number of segments to be used in a Foward Difference Method calculation.
Port: Translate Helix
Widens helix by specified factor.
Number of threads if "Threads" is selected.
Type: Radio Box
Menu Item: Ribbon
Menu Item: Threads
"Threads" or "Ribbons" selector.
NURBS geometry information for threads (splines) or sheets (patches).
PROBLEMSLarger number of segments do not give a suitable ribbons representation.
