Detect axes of cyclic, dihedral and cubic symmetries in protein complexes.

This app compute axes of symmetry in protein complexes. It handles cyclic, dihedral and cubic symmetries. The computed axes are displayed and the RMSD to perfect symmetry is given.

Documentation

Please refer to the tutorial on Computing axes of symmetry of biological assemblies.
