Enum CESymmParameters.SymmetryType

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<CESymmParameters.SymmetryType>
    Enclosing class:

    public static enum CESymmParameters.SymmetryType
    extends Enum<CESymmParameters.SymmetryType>
    The internal symmetry detection can be divided into two types: CLOSE: includes the circular and dihedral symmetries, and OPEN: includes the helical and protein repeats symmetries.

    All internal symmetry cases share one property: all the repeats have the same 3D transformation.

    AUTO option automatically identifies the type. The criterion for classification is that the CLOSE symmetry generates CeSymm alignments with circular permutations (2 blocks in AFPChain), whereas the OPEN symmetry generates alignments without a CP (only one block in AFPChain).
