What are some of the structural (protein) transformation packages available, which can change a bond length, angle or dihedral?

    $\begingroup$ In principle, with a text editor you can modify the structure file manually. Also, must of the visualization/editor molecular programs can do what you want. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As Camps notes, this might be a little too broad. In theory, almost any molecule visualization software can do this, plus a number of other packages like ASE, or even direct text editors. Could you narrow the scope of what you are looking for? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Something like the VMD structure transformation capabilities (translate, rotate...) but without the graphical interface. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Camps are you able to write an answer now, based on the response by BND? $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2021 at 20:43
  • $\begingroup$ I still feel this is very broad, even excluding GUI programs (many of which also have a commandline interface that would satisfy your question). I think you should edit the question to narrow it down, rather than adding details in the comments. $\endgroup$
