Swap: swapping coordinates between atoms


  • Jun 6 2014. Code is now available through GitHub.


The Swap plugin is a set of procedures (no GUI is supplied) to swap coordinates between atoms in a molecule. The development of this plugin started due to the necessity to calculate the best rmsd between two conformations of a molecule that contains symmetric atoms. It has been further developed to allow for more abstract swapping of atoms and to be accessible from other plugins or the command line.
