x3dna-dssr -h no response
« on: January 15, 2021, 09:05:30 pm »
Hello all. I just downloaded and installed x3dna-v2.4  and am running it in ubuntu on the linux susbystem for windows 10. I believe I set everything up correctly because find_pair -h works for me. However when I go through the manual and try the commands x3dna-dssr -h or any x3dna-dssr command it returns "x3dna-dssr: command not found". I don't know what I am doing wrong at this point and I am trying to be able to get the dot bracket notation for PDBs for RNAs of interest, I'm still very new at this so any helpful advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • The 3DNA suite of programs (up to v2.4) has been superseded by DSSR. See the Overview PDF, especially Section 1.4 DSSR vs. 3DNA vs. SCHNAaP/SCHNArP.
  • DSSR is licensed by Columbia University. It is available only through the website
  • 3DNA v2.4 (along with SCHNAaP/SCHNArP) is still available for downloaded from this Forum, but it is on longer developed/supported.

Hope this helps.
