[Chimera-users] SAS values for single atoms and residues

Hi Elaine,

I'm trying to calculate the solvent accessible surface area for  
several lysine residues in a protein  to evaluate which are most  
likely to be free on the surface for functionalization. My thought was  
to just calculate the SAS area and rank order them. When I select just  
the primary amine of all the lysine residues and go to the reply log I  
get several numbers in a row under SAS and I'm not sure which are  
correct. These numbers don't seem to change if I select different  
residues so I'm not sure how to get the SAS values just for my lysine
