problems with find pair dont recognize modificated base pair

Hi

The problem you have is because of the non-standard atomic names of the modified 8oxoguanine.  This will become immediately obvious if you display this residue using Rasmol and "label %a". For example, you do not have the " N9 " atom, instead you have " N4 " connecting to " C6 ". 3DNA uses the standard atomic names to identify a residue.
Code: [Select]
ATOM      1  O1  8og     1       3.537   1.423  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      2  C4  8og     1       3.852   0.232  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      3  N1  8og     1       2.854  -0.789  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      4  C1  8og     1       3.077  -2.143  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      5  N5  8og     1       1.984  -2.956  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      6  N2  8og     1       4.278  -2.684  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      7  C2  8og     1       5.269  -1.754  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      8  C3  8og     1       5.134  -0.380  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM      9  N3  8og     1       6.409   0.160  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM     10  C5  8og     1       7.365  -0.843  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM     11  O2  8og     1       8.589  -0.742  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM     12  N4  8og     1       6.615  -2.035  -0.000  1.00  0.00
ATOM     13  C6  8og     1       7.224  -3.350  -0.000  1.00  0.00
In addition, there is already an entry for 8OG in file baselist.dat
Code: [Select]
8OG     g      #       pdb1fyi
so you need not to add an extra line for it. Indeed it helps to download pdb1fyi to see how atoms are named for 8OG over there.

When adding a new base into baselist.dat, please use all uppercase letters: thus use "8OG" instead of "8og".
