Prints the amino acids contacting the DNA and the nucleotides contacting the protein in a protein-DNA complex. The minimal configuration file for DNAContact:


It can be run from the command line:

FoldX --command=DNAContact --pdb=DC.pdb

FoldX uses output-file as a tag to label different outputs from different commands in batch runs. After running DNAScan you'll get one file to look at. Given output-file="TAG" the output file is:

  • DS_TAG.fxout -> Contacts between DNA and Protein

If you don't set output-file, TAG will be the pdbId of the first pdb on the batch.
