Hi Kloe,
I mentioned the FindHBond tool in my previous reply to you.  Did you try it?


> Open tools from the Chimera Tools menu, for example:
> Tools… Structure Analysis… FindHBond
> Tools… Structure Analysis… Find Clashes/Contacts

If you show a tool and click the Help button on that tool, it will explain the options.

Also, you should go through the “Structure Analysis and Comparison” tutorial, which includes FIndHBond and some other things for looking at ligand-receptor interactions
