Thank you for your reply.
I try to select the group, 'mainchain', when prompted, and get the quantity
of coil still larger than the number of residues of my protein.
The data is the same as the output that generated by the selection, "1.
If I select backbone, I get the fatal error:
Failed to execute command: /Prousr/statphys/hsinlin/dssp/dsspcmbi -na
ddhIPvCe ddJ6Yv7a > /dev/null 2> /dev/null
And I don't understand even if I can run the selection, "backbone",
According the dssp web of wiki:
the hydrogen bonds are dicided by O, C, H, and N four atoms.
How can we get dssp analysis by backbone that includes only NCCNCCNCC.....?
