    If this is an assignment your teacher or schoolmates should be be consulted. The important is that you learn to do it in he context of your curriculum ( which I do not know). A copy/paste will only bump you down to the next stopper.

    Here the issue is that "demo" is not a Python variable (as the error message from Python suggests it). The function demo is present in R, so should be fetched from there by one of the access points rpy2 is providing.

    how can i correctly fetch it from rpy2 please give me an example so i can understand this in a better way . my supervisor didn't help me in this project as i want to use PCA codes that are given in R language on bio3D but i want to transfer that code in python by using rpy2 . the problem is that no one help me in this context and i am totally new in this field and i have very less time to cover it , the only source i have to get correct dimension is only you. please help me that how i use these commands and transfer them in python through rpy2

    mydcdfile <- "/path/to/my/data/myfile.dcd"
    dcd <- read.dcd(dcdfile)
    pdb <- read.pdb(pdbfile)
    ca.inds <-, elety="CA")
    xyz <-$xyz, mobile=dcd,
    dim(xyz) == dim(dcd)
    pc <-[,ca.inds$xyz])
    plot(pc, col=bwr.colors(nrow(xyz)) )
    hc <- hclust(dist(pc$z[,1:2]))
    grps <- cutree(hc, k=2)
    plot(pc, col=grps)
    plot.bio3d(pc$au[,1], ylab="PC1 (A)", xlab="Residue Position", typ="l")
    points(pc$au[,2], typ="l", col="blue")
    p1 <- mktrj.pca(pc, pc=1, b=pc$au[,1], file="pc1.pdb")
    p2 <- mktrj.pca(pc, pc=2,b=pc$au[,2], file="pc2.pdb")
    write.ncdf(p1, "")
