biopython v1.71.0 Bio.PDB.Atom.DisorderedAtom

Contains all Atom objects that represent the same disordered atom.

One of these atoms is “selected” and all method calls not caught by DisorderedAtom are forwarded to the selected Atom object. In that way, a DisorderedAtom behaves exactly like a normal Atom. By default, the selected Atom object represents the Atom object with the highest occupancy, but a different Atom object can be selected by using the disordered_select(altloc) method.
