[gmx-users] g_cluster analysis for structure refirement

thanks for suggestions! Some additional questions regarding g_cluster
1- how most correctly select cutoff value for clustering of the
surface-exposed loops assuming big number of clusters? In literature I've
found cutoff ~ 1.3 A for enzymes active-site loops applicable for analysis
of the md trajectory. In my case I suppose cutoff might be higher due to
the Modeller loop prediction based on the SA (which gives bigger RMSD
variance of the DATA) as well as that fact that loops in my case are
2- What flag in g_cluster could be used to save from each cluster of its
most representative (not averaged!) structure as the individual pdb?
Thanks a lot,
