Member Site Forums Rosetta 3 Rosetta 3 – General How to input constraints? Reply To: How to input constraints?


    It’s a good idea to use the flags -constant_seed and -jran ###, where ### is some large number (I use 6 or 7 digits). This “sets” the random number seed for rosetta’s internal (and robust!) RNG. If you do not supply a seed, rosetta queries your OS for a random number to use as its seed: this may be useful or not depending on your OS. I personally always set the seed manually but many people do not.

    There is no formal feature request system nor bug tracker. (There may be one associated with the rosetta @home project and/or the FoldIt game; but I think these are mostly for the UIs and not the protein code.) I’ll point this request out.
