        Given a protein complex, I would like to estimate the effect of a point mutation on the binding energy (ddG). I’d appreciate if anyone could point me to the Rosetta app(s) that I should look into. I’m fairly new to Rosetta.

          I’ve asked around to see if there’s a DDG app already present in 3.2.

          If not, doing it with fixbb is pretty simple:
          1)Get PDBs of the bound complex and each monomer.
          2)Calculate dG of binding by packing them separately subtracting their scores AB-A-B.
          3)Do 2) again with the mutation in place (via resfile)
          4) subtract 3 from 2 and you have ddG.

            After consultation, it seems there isn’t a released executeable for this; your best bet is the steps I described.

              If that doesn’t work for you, there is a script written by Sid Chaudhury to do just that in PyRosetta:

                Thank you very much for looking into this! I’m giving your suggestion a try.
