Author: Jared Adolf-Bryfogle ( A metric for measuring SASA and adding it to the resulting score file. 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.
