g_confrms_d: fits two structures and calculates the rmsd
NAMEg_confrms - fits two structures and calculates the rmsd
SYNOPSISg_confrms -f1 conf1.gro -f2 conf2.gro -o fit.pdb -n1 fit1.ndx -n2 fit2.ndx -no match.ndx -[no]h -nice int -[no]w -[no]one -[no]mw -[no]pbc -[no]fit -[no]name -[no]label -[no]bfac
DESCRIPTIONg_confrms computes the root mean square deviation (RMSD) of two structures after LSQ fitting the second structure on the first one. The two structures do NOT need to have the same number of atoms, only the two index groups used for the fit need to be identical. With -name only matching atom names from the selected groups will be used for the fit and RMSD calculation. This can be useful when comparing mutants of a protein.
The superimposed structures are written to file. In a .pdb file the two structures will be written as separate models (use rasmol -nmrpdb). Also in a .pdb file, B-factors calculated from the atomic MSD values can be written with -bfac.
