MC DNA Help - Analysis End-to-end distance
This analysis is available available when “MC DNA” or “MC DNA + proteins” is chosen. The end to end distance of the DNA fiber is calculated as the distance of the C5 atom of the first and last base of the 3’ -> 5’ strand. The interface offers an interactive way to switch between the snapshots of the trajectory by selecting the snapshot either in the distance selector (end to end distance increases from left to right) or in the end-to-end distances plot which is ordered according to the index of each snapshot in the trajectory. In either case when selecting a distance/snapshot the indicator of the other plot is adjusted accordingly and the corresponding structure with its distance is shown with the NGL viewer.
