It prints the sequence information of the protein in a column format: AA, Chain, Pdb Number. The minimal configuration file for SequenceDetail:


It can be run from the command line:

FoldX --command=SequenceDetail --pdb=SD.pdb

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

  • SD_TAG.fxout -> sequence information If you don't set output-file

TAG will be the pdbId of the first pdb on the batch.

SequenceDetail energy terms

This is the field description of the output file for the output SD_TAG.fxout in the same order they appear on the file.
