  • custom_type: Allows multiple configured SimpleMetrics of a single type to be called in a single RunSimpleMetrics and SimpleMetricFeatures. The custom_type name will be added to the data tag in the scorefile or features database.
  • include_omega: Do we include protein omega in calculations? Default false.
  • use_native: Use the native if present on the cmd-line.
  • reference_name: Name of reference pose to use (Use the SavePoseMover to create a reference pose)
  • residue_selector: Calculate the RMSD for these residues for both reference and main pose.
  • residue_selector_ref: Selector for the reference pose (input native or passed reference pose. ). Residues selected must be same number of residues selected for the main selector.
