Author: Jared Adolf-Bryfogle ( A metric to report the total energy of the system or the delta total energy between another input pose or the cmd-line set native.

<TotalEnergyMetric name="(&string;)" custom_type="(&string;)"
        reference_name="(&string;)" use_native="(false &bool;)"
        scoretype="(total_score &scoretypes;)" residue_selector="(&string;)"
        scorefxn="(&string;)" />
  • 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.
  • reference_name: Name of reference pose to use (Use the SavePoseMover to create a reference pose)
  • use_native: Use the native as reference for DELTA score if present on the cmd-line.
  • scoretype: ScoreType to calculate.
  • residue_selector: If a residue selector is present, we calculate the total energy of only these residues.
  • scorefxn: Name of score function to use
