obrotamer(1)                User's Reference Manual               obrotamer(1)

NAME
     obrotamer — generate conformer/rotamer coordinates

SYNOPSIS
     obrotamer filename

DESCRIPTION
     The obrotamer tool can be used as part of a conformational search by
     generating random isomers based on rotating dihedral angles. These
     rotamers are not conformers -- that is, obrotamer does not perform
     geometry optimization after generating the rotamer structure. The
     obminimize tool can do geometry optimization using molecular mechanics.

EXAMPLES
           obrotamer baseconformer.sdf >rotamer1.sdf

     Generate a random rotational isomer of baseconformer.sdf and write it to
     rotamer1.sdf
