Dear Elaine, Dear Marco
Many thanks for your message and suggestion.
Marco, I took contact with Xian-Jun Lu who is in charge of 3DNA. I'm
waiting for his answer. I will give a feedback here.
Elaine, I keep in mind the idea of Maxsprout for protein rebuild from
trace. About the DNA, since I have the initial DNA portion, not deformed
and complete, I tried to make a morph between the complete DNA and its
deformed trace. But only the trace of the original structure morphed.
A colleague is going to make something using Yasara. Wait and see.
