[Chimera-users] the docking confidence score

Here is continuous question about sequential docking score:
By eyes I can find that models have good fitting to my EM, and the
correlation is 0.8 (I calculate it in two ways: each or all of them). But I
was curious in what range we could consider the docking reliable?
Thanks and cheers,
