[Chimera-users] building a alpha helix

Dear All

I was wondering if there is any tool by which can generate an alpha helix, 
as an extension of a truncated crystal structure docked in the density map. 
The possibility of the truncated portion of the protein behaving as an alpha 
helix has been predicted by different groups. The density map shows some 
empty regions (after the crystal structure has been docked) just good enough 
for an alpha helix to fit in.
