Surfnet was developed to calculate cleft, surfaces and void regions in proteins. It is a fairly simple program run from a parameter file.

It is also use as a component of PDBsumProprietary

Data Input

Data input is from coordinate files the obey the PDB format.

Running the software

When Surfnet is run, output is written to an .srf file.

This .srf file can then be processed by the supporting tools to compare different sites.

For visualisation a .den density file or VRML can be generated.

The .den files can be read directly by some 3rd party programs or indirectly using converter programs available in the CCP4 package.

Though one of the older programs in our portfolio, it works well.


Linux  Can run on virtual machine.
