Hi All,

Could anybody share the basic concept about different coordinate systems 
primarily used to describe the 3D structures of DNA, RNA and proteins? Are 
there any terms like Nucleic Acid Coordinate System and Protein Coordinate 

I was reading basics about Coordinate Systems from Wikipedia but I was unable 
to correlate it to explain the structure of Biomolecules  and to understand 
how structure simulation/Prediction techniques works using coordinate 
systems ? Any insight about what I asked or anything related would be greatly 

Thank you. 

Best Wishes,
