Enum GroupType

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<GroupType>

    public enum GroupType
    extends Enum<GroupType>
    This contains basic categories for Group types. It reflects the categorization used in old PDB file (e.g. for storing whether a residue is composed of ATOM or HETATM records. It is less specific than the mmCIF/PDBx-defined ResidueType enum, which may be more suitable for future applications.

      • values

        public static GroupType[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (GroupType c : GroupType.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static GroupType valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • getResidueTypes

        public Set<ResidueTypegetResidueTypes()
        Get a set of ResidueTypes loosely equivalent to this GroupType.

        Because mmCIF and PDB handle modified residues differently, some Groups may have a well-defined ResidueType yet still be HETATMs.
