[phenixbb] mr_rosetta with fixed solutions for other chains

Hi Joel,

Not exactly...mr_rosetta can only run the MR portion on one component.

However in your case you can break it down.  First you can run rosetta on
your search model for the 3rd component prior to MR. Then you can run MR
with phaser in the usual way with the rosetta model for the 3rd component.
Then you can feed the entire MR solution into mr_rosetta and have it

For the first step above you can use:

phenix.mr_rosetta \
  seq_file=seq.dat \
  search_models=coords1.pdb \
  run_prerefine=True \

Your pre-refined model(s) will be listed in


and you can pick the best of these (most negative score, listed first).

I hope that helps!

All the best,
Tom T
