Next: AVESTRUC Up: Summary of parameters for Previous: MERGETRANS & EXTRANS


Sometimes one has several files containing transformations or alignemnts or both and wants to combine them. Alignments/transformations from STAMP may need to be combined with (for example) an alignment of a single PDB sequence with it's homologues from a sequence database search, etc. MERGESTAMP does just this. It is essentially an extension of MERGETRANS.

The format is:

mergestamp -f1 <transformation file1> -f2 <transformation file2> [-i <domain identifier>]

If an identifier is given, then that identifier will be used to link the two files (provided it can be found in both). Otherwise the program will simply search for the first identifier that is exactly in common across the two transformation/alignment files.
