Berkeley-SC-Ensemble Decoys

The directory contains alternate high scoring conformations of Rosetta decoys and native state structures for 55 proteins. These alternate conformations were generated using the MC-SCE method developed by our group by placing alternate side chain rotamers on a given backbone. The best generated structure(for each native and its corresponding decoys) from our MC-SCE method was energy-minimized using the all-atom AMBER-ff99SB forcefield with the GB-HPMF solvation model. Currently, PDB files for 24 proteins can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the page.
