Figure 1
Modular design of the Situs package. Major Situs components (blue) are classified by their functionality. The main workflow is indicated by brown arrows. The visualization (orange) for the rendering of the models requires an external molecular-graphics viewer compatible with the density-map format, such as VMD (Humphrey et al., 1996BB10), Chimera (Pettersen et al., 2004BB16) or Sculptor (Birmanns et al., 2011BB31). This example workflow shows how various Situs tools can bring two volumetric maps into register (see text). Since Situs rigid-body matching tools require a PDB file for the docking to a target map, the second map is intermittently transferred into atomic (PDB) format. After the matching of the pseudo-atomic map, it is interpolated back into volumetric format and can then be processed further.
