APBS stands for Adaptive Poisson-Boltzmann Solver.
APBS came as part of the MGLTools packages binary and commands. For instance, APBS can be used to compute the electrostatic fields of a protein.
APBS has been included in ePMV since v0.3.1b.
The plugin acts on the current molecule. Two actions can be performed:
If the readpqr button is check, the file produced by pdb2pqr will be loaded as well (molname.pqr).
The working directory of APBS is pathoMGL/apbs-molname
Two options are provided for the color projections: the offset to apply to the geometry normal and the coefficient to apply on the standard deviation of the grid values.
Any type of geometry (polygon/mesh) can be assign.
Note: We to do some more test for the accuracy of the projection especially in Cinema4D where accessing vertex normals is not simple.
