[Chimera-users] electrostatic interactions

Hi Elaine, thanks for your response !! I am just wondering if this Find H-bond tool can also find any other polar interactions than Hydrogen bonds, like salt bridges. Please let me know. Thanks !!

Hi Ruchika,
There is a FindHBond tool, and also coloring the surface by electrostatic potential.

Of course you can just look at the help pages for all the tools or commands you are interested in.  The list of all tools has links to their individual help pages:

... but I recommend going through these tutorials for examples of using them:

(1) Structure Analysis and Comparison
     (includes Find Contacts, FindHBond, surface coloring by hydrophobicity)

(2) Image Tutorial: Surface Properties
    (surface coloring by hydrophobicity and electrostatic potential)

I hope this helps,
