[Biopython-dev] Extended Amino Acid Chains

To whom it may concern,

I am currently developing a program in Biopython that creates amino acid
chains from an inputted AA sequence. The program would output a single
amino acid chain in an extended conformation. Is this something of interest
to the developers of Biopython?

I am using basic calculus to calculate the position of the atoms in the
protein residues and using known protein geometries and database
information from PDB.org and the Dunbrack group <http://dunbrack.fccc.edu/>.
This program is an extension of my current research in calculating Relative
Solvent Accessibilities of protein residues.

Thank you for your time,
