BcForms: toolkit for concretely describing macromolecular complexes

BcForms is a toolkit for concretely describing the molecular structure (atoms and bonds) of macromolecular complexes, including non-canonical monomeric forms, circular topologies, and crosslinks.

BcForms encompasses five tools: * A grammar for concretely describing subunit composition and interchain crosslinks of biocomplexes. See the documentation for more information. For example, the following text represents a homodimer complex with a disulfide bond between the first monomer in the first subunit and the first monomer in the second subunit. complex: 2 * sub_c | x-link: [ l-bond-atom: sub_c(1)-1S11 | l-displaced-atom: sub_c(1)-1H11 | r-bond-atom: sub_c(2)-1S11 | r-displaced-atom: sub_c(2)-1H11 ]

This concrete representation enables the `BcForms` software tools to calculate properties of biocomplexes when the subunits are concretely defined.
