Structural Superimposition of Local Sequence Alignment using BioPython
This task was given to me as a homework in one of my courses at the university and I wanted to share my solution as I saw there is no such entry on the Internet.
Objectives here are;
- Download (two) PDB files automatically from the server
- Do the pairwise alignment after getting their amino acid sequences
- Superimpose them and report RMSD
Bio.PDB module from BioPython works very well in this case. It’s what I used in this solution.
