I have a rather simple question but for which I did no figure an answer
yet ... I have 2 DNA molecules which I want to superimpose.
The superposition should be done like this:
res 1 from mol 1 on res 10 from mol 2,
res 2 from mol 1 on res 9 from mol 2,
res 3 from mol 1 on res 8 from mol2,
.. and so on ...
If I do the selections "resid 1 to 3" and "resid 10 to 8", it does not
work as VMD tries to superimpose 1 on 8, 2 on 9, and 3 on 10.
I also tried to change the residue numbers in mol 2 such as res 10
becomes res 100, res 9 becomes res 101, res 8 becomes res 102 (to have
ascending order). However, still no success, VMD does not care about the
residue number, it still tries the same. ...
Do I need to change all atom indices to actually make VMD superimpose
the way I want ? Or is there an easier solution to this ?
Thanks for any advice ..
