Hi again,

I'd like  to return the sequence of the protein I opened in chimera  in
the python shell.

>From what I read through, I thought that chimera.getSequence could be
used to do so.

I was thinking in a simple script beginning with :
import chimera

However the chimera.getSequence(0,0)  comes back with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#50>", line 1, in ?
    chimera.getSequence(0, 0)
  File "CHIMERA/share/chimera/Sequence.py", line 614, in getSequence
  File "CHIMERA/share/chimera/Sequence.py", line 656, in getSequences
AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'residues'




Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#48>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'A' is not defined

Did I understand correctly the role of getSequence? if yes, what would
be the correct syntax please?

Thanks a lot!

All the best,
