The contact map visualizer plugin can link contact map images to the residues in PyMOL in a interactive way. Contact maps are pixel graphics where each protein residue corresponds to one line and one row of pixels. Thus for a 100 residue protein, such a image has 100x100 pixels. A common tool to generate such images is g_mdmat from the gromacs package.

Contents

Usage

contact_map_visualizer [ image_file [, selection ]]

Required Dependencies

Example for installing all dependencies on a Ubuntu like system:

sudo apt-get install python-tk python-imaging python-pygame

Installation

Alternative way: Just run the script, it will provide a command but no menu plugin entry.

Generate Contact Map

Mean contact map of a protein trajectory generated from g_mdmat tool in the Gromacs analysis package.

Use the command g_mdmat from Gromacs analysis package. A typical contact map looks like the figure on the right.

To generate contact map of a single PDB. For example contact map for a PDB from RCSB, use the following command

g_mdmat -f <protein.pdb> -s <protein.pdb> -mean contact-map.xpm

To generate a mean contact map form a protein trajectory

g_mdmat -f <trajectory.pdb> -s <starting-frame.pdb> -mean contact-map.xpm
