: Hi,

: Does anyone know where I can get the algorithm for 
: performing minimum RMS deviation alignment between two
: protein chains? 

Hi Alexander,

I have a program called ProFit which will do the fitting for you; it will
run from a script file so you can easily use it to run through several
thousand structures. It's available via my Web page.

I also have a program called genloop which will create a backbone (N,CA,C)
or CA trace from a set of torsion angles. Contact me by EMail if you 
want a copy of this.

Best wishes,
