[gmx-users] Fwd: PCA two ensembles different atoms order

The correlation between the NMR and the simulation is pretty similar. I
have analysed torsion angles distributions and they do sample similar area.
When I performed the PCA I projected the NMR and REMD ensembles onto the
NMR PCs. I have four different compounds and for each of them I performed
REMD with two different starting conformations. I also have NMR ensemble
for all of them. After performing the PCA for all of them I noticed a
similar behaviour. First the NMR ensemble is spread almost evenly on the
two REMD ensembles (two starting confo) but the two REMD ensembles do not
overlap but are kind of separated into the PCs which made me wonder if it
was an issue of the files or if it is completely ok.
