I might be able to offer a bit of help here, the Chimera team and Jaime helped me with basically this exact problem.

I have a script here https://github.com/jrjhealey/bioinfo-tools/blob/master/strucfit.py that you could take from. You'll probably want to look specifically at lines 216-240. (Note - you'll also need to look at the relevant module imports for match and pychimera etc.

The script will need Jaime's implementation of pychimera too (he's super helpful!)


The script gives output as below, as the script automatically finds the best matching PDB file (that's what the first 150 lines or so is looking for), there is additional information there.

Hope that's useful! Happy to offer more help (though I'm sure the chimera team have it covered!)

I'm working on a script to superimpose pdb structures onto one another and then run the match -> align tool to align them to get the RMSD between residues of the pdb structures. I know that from the multialign interviewer window, I can then go to structure acess match and then save the attributes as a text file that will contain the residue number and RMSD. Is there a command that I can use to output this attributes file automatically? Thank you, and happy holidays.
