CustomBaseTypePackerPalette documentation created by Vikram K. Mulligan ( on 20 February 2019.


A PackerPalette permitting design with the canonical 20 amino acids plus a user-specified list of other base types.

RosettaScripts Details

Autogenerated Tag Syntax Documentation:

Sets up a packer palette that expands the default (canonical) residue type set with user-defined base types or types selected by ResidueProperties.

  • additional_residue_types: A comma-separated list of additional residue types (by full base name) to add to the PackerPalette.


The following example creates a palette that allows both L- and D-amino acids (and GLY), then uses the Phi ResidueSelector to restrict design to L-amino acids at positions in the negative-phi region of Ramachandran space, and to D-amino acids at positions in the positive-phi region of Ramachandran space:

        <ScoreFunction name="r15" weights="ref2015.wts"/>
        <CustomBaseTypePackerPalette name="palette" additional_residue_types="DALA,DCYS,DASP,DGLU,DPHE,DHIS,DILE,DLYS,DLEU,DMET,DASN,DPRO,DGLN,DARG,DSER,DTHR,DVAL,DTRP,DTYR" />
        <Phi name="posPhi" select_positive_phi="true" ignore_unconnected_upper="false" />
        <Not name="negPhi" selector="select_positive_phi" />
          <ReadResfile name="l_res" filename="inputs/l_res.txt" selector="negPhi"/>
          <ReadResfile name="d_res" filename="inputs/d_res.txt" selector="posPhi"/>
        <PackRotamersMover name="packer" scorefxn="r15" task_operations="l_res,d_res" packer_palette="palette" />
        <Add mover="terminal_bond1"/>
        <Add mover="terminal_bond2"/>
        <Add mover="packer"/>
    <OUTPUT scorefxn="r15" />

The resfile l_res.txt would look like this:


And the resfile d_res.txt would look like this:
