[Chimera-users] modify structure

Hello Francesco,

If you want to mutate a residue, you can try the swapaa command:

For instance:
swapaa val #0:12.a lib Dunbrack preserve true

where val is the target mutation, #0 gives the model number of the peptide
in Chimera, 12.a says to make the mutation on residue position 12 of chain
lib Dunbrack tells to use the Dunbrack rotamer library, and preserve true
to keep the rotamer of the mutation close to the original one.

Hope this helps,
