[Chimera-users] Python Script to Find Contact Area Between 2 Proteins

Those arguments are “surface pieces”. Each molecular surface has only one “piece” (despite possibly looking like multiple disjoint pieces). Once you run the “surface” command (generating two molecular surfaces) you can get the p1/p2 arguments with this code fragment:
p1, p2 = [s.surface_piece for s in openModels.list(modelTypes=[MSMSModel])]
Both openModels and MSMSModel are in the “chimera” module, but since your code does a “from chimera import *” you can get away with just the above.
