General discussions (Q&As) / Re: building circular DNA
« Last post by xiangjun on July 16, 2019, 12:06:01 pm »
I understood that you have been "trying to create a DNA ring system". 3DNA does not have a direct solution to this problem, neither will it likely in the general sense.

You may give NAB a try. If you find a way, please post back so other viewers may benefit.

Best regards,

Hi Xiangjun,

I am just trying to create a DNA ring system and then do some simulations to study some properties.
Am not sure what parameters will be good as I do not have any experimental data.

Hi,

I'm not sure I fully understand your question in a practical sense. Please be specific.

The 3DNA rebuild can generate any structure (at the base-pair level) with a set of prescribed base-pair and step parameters. It's really up to the user to build what they want.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun

General discussions (Q&As) / building circular DNA
« Last post by x3dna_test on July 15, 2019, 06:11:48 pm »
Hi Xiangjun and All,

I am just wondering is it possible to build a circular DNA? I have seen one can analyse circular DNA with x3DNA but not sure how to build them and what parameters to be used.
Thanks.

It seems the new version (Jul8) works very well for all my trajectory for now.

Glad to hear that the updated version works. I've just released DSSR v1.9.4-2019jul08.

By the way I am benchmarking your new version using a ribosomal structure (PDB 1FFK).
Here I attached the output using version 2017jan22 (x3dna-dssr-old) and 2019jul08 (x3dna-dssr).

Here is the output:

For example, it seems the new version detect less base pairs, less multiplets, is that because you adjust the criteria for base pair or something?

If you think this post should be in a separate topic, could you please help move it to a proper place?

DSSR has been under continuous development and delivery. I maintain an extensive test set that includes all known buggy cases (such as your attached examples in this thread). For each release, I test DSSR against all nucleic-acid structures in the PDB to ensure that it does not crash. Except for boundary cases, DSSR is stable from version 1.0 and backward compatible, especially with the JSON output. I am confident that DSSR is a solid software product, with robust performances in real-world applications.

If you are interested in knowing the details between the two versions you tested, please start a new thread. Please provide concrete examples (base pairs, multiplets, etc.) where the differences really bother you.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun

For example, it seems the new version detect less base pairs, less multiplets, is that because you adjust the criteria for base pair or something?

If you think this post should be in a separate topic, could you please help move it to a proper place?

OK, I will restart using the version today.

Yes, I updated DSSR today. The previous DSSR version you're using should work: the "Uncaught exception 'Assertion failed'" message you reported earlier should be gone. Nevertheless, it is preferable to restart with the latest version.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun

Hi Xiangjun,

So do you update a new version today? I am still running the version you upload yesterday on my trajectory. It seems that it took longer than I expected.

Best,
Honglue
