[Modeller] point mutation script

Saw a script provided by Modeller that can quickly mutate a point to any other residues.

Here is the linke <Mutate model python script by Modeller>

To use the script, just type command like the following line:
Example: python 1t29 1699 LEU A > 1t29.log

Where is the script provided by Modeller
1t29 is the PDB file name
1699 is the position for mutation
LEU is the new residue
A stands for chain number.

I have test this script at Modeller 9v11, it works very well and quickly.



  1. i am having an error on the line
    s = selection(mdl1.chains[chain].residues[respos])
    can u please help me.

    • It’s better to ask the Modeller expert to solve your problem. I am not a regular Modeller user, I may not be that helpful.
