I would like to compute the angle between each carbonyl backbone group and the largest inertia axis of a protein. Would it be possible to do that with available scripts in vmd ? If not could you suggest me ways to perform this type of calculation. I've seen that I could get the principal axes through the package orient but then ... Thank you very much.
