Hi I quite new to the phenix environemnt and just ran a phenix refinement
with the following command line
*phenix.refine myfile.mtz mymodel.pdb simulated_annealing=true model.ncs
refinement.ncs.excessive_distance_limit=None >phenix_06_18_2008_2.log *
The model.ncs file is structured as follows
reference = chain A
selection = chain B
selection = chain C
selection = chain D
My data is good to 3.3 A ( membrane protein) and thus far I have been
refining with refmac5. After the phenix run indicated above, I had a
dramatic reduction in r/rfree ( post refmac 33/36 AND post phenix 28/31).
This is despite relatively small changes to my model by the simulated
I have a few questions about the process and am hoping some phenix veterans
can help me out.
1) At my resolution I guess I should at best be refining only one B-factor /
ADP per residue is this the default behavior with the command line above
2) I have seen the emails about syntax for forcing group-B refinement at this
Basically they use strategy=group_adp . I am imagining this calculates one
ADP per residue or per defined group. In my case if I force the behavior
with the syntax , how is group ADP for NCS-mates handled?
3) On a general note , when I say phenix.refine --show-defaults , the
section on strategy has a long list, what do the asterisks (*) in the syntax
mean .Does that mean those are the defaults .
Also how can I infer the syntax from this hierarchy?
Sorry for the long list of questions but I am very happy with phenix and
just thought I should understand the syntax better.
Thanks for your help
phenix.refine --show-defaults returns
strategy = *individual_sites rigid_body *individual_adp group_adp tls \
individual_occupancies group_occupancies group_anomalous
individual = None
rigid_body = None
isotropic = None
anisotropic = None
group = None
one_adp_group_per_residue = True
tls = None
