[Chimera-users] the docking confidence score

As I understand it, there is no "magic" level of correlation that means the result is right or good across all systems -- instead it is for comparisons only within the same system, i.e. different fits of the same structure into the same map.
There are too many variables (resolution, surface contour level, etc.) to compare between different systems.
I hope this helps,

> Sequential fitting just fits one structure locally, then subtracts density from where that structure is, then fits the next structure locally, etc. So structures are only fit (and scored) one at a time, and it depends what order they are in and also their starting positions since they are only fit locally. However, you can keep iterating sequentially through all of the structures multiple times to improve the results.
