splitpdb (3)
Tim Schäfer


The SplitPDB tool can be used to extract data on a specific model (the 1st one by default) from a PDB file. This is required if the PDB file contains multiple models because the DSSP program does not support files with multiple models.

Run the following command to access the built-in help of splitpdb:

java -jar splitpdb.jar --help
