Growing Glycans in Rosetta: Accurate de novo glycan modeling, density fitting, and rational sequon design Jared Adolf-Bryfogle, J. W Labonte, J. C Kraft, M. Shapavolov, S. Raemisch, T. Lutteke, F.

The app prints out information for each glycan tree, including rosetta numbering, pdb numbering, internal-glycan numbering, and the connections of every residue in the tree. It is very useful when dealing with more than one glycan tree, or when one needs to work with particular components of the glycan.


Example command-line:

glycan_clash_check.default.macosclangrelease -include_sugars \
-s pose_with_glycan.pdb 

NOTE: It will not echo any PDB files, and will print the information to the screen.
