Question: How do you plot secondary structure like PDB?

Does anyone know the software PDB uses to draw the chain's secondary structure (DSSP line)? Or any other programs that can draw the same type of diagrams programatically?

Anyone know how to do something like this?

Have you tried the answer below? What is it you want to replicate specifically? That exact figure?

Yes, I'm more looking for the helix + loop + sheet cartoon.

I believe Jalview may also be able to show similar schematics, give that a try.

I'm not sure what PDB uses specifically, but you can get very similar results with ESpript. I think you usually use the output files of something like DSSP to dictate where the secondary structure lies, and then tools like ESpript render it on to the sequence.
