Author: Jared Adolf-Bryfogle ( A metric for measuring SASA and adding it to the resulting score file. Virtual atoms are skipped completely. Modified 19 Aug. 2019 by Vikram K. Mulligan to add options for polar or hydrophobic SASA.

<SasaMetric name="(&string;)" custom_type="(&string;)"
        residue_selector="(&string;)" sasa_metric_mode="(all_sasa &string;)" />
  • custom_type: Allows multiple configured SimpleMetrics of a single type to be called in a single RunSimpleMetrics and SimpleMetricFeatures. The custom_type name will be added to the data tag in the scorefile or features database.
  • residue_selector: If a residue selector is present, we calculate the total sasa of these residues.
  • sasa_metric_mode: Sets the behaviour of the calculator (the subset of the SASA that is counted). Options include: all_sasa, polar_sasa, hydrophobic_sasa.
