Dear all,

i want to initialize the coordinates for a sequence of
16 aminoacids. I have only the sequence not the
coordinates of all of the atoms, is there in charmm
a way to initialize these cartesian coordinates randomly
given a sequence? I have tried with "coor init" but
when i write the command "print coor" all the entries
are filled with 9999.

"coor init" initializes the selected coordinate to their initial UNDEFINED state.

To get random coordinates you can try:
random ...
scalar x set random select ... end
scalar y set random select ... end
scalar z set random select ... end
