Is this how it works? Can you elaborate on the algorithm? What are the criteria to select the optimum alignment and what is the answer you seek from the mailing list?

I've been working on optimization at the alignment level in the past, but in my approach the selection of the optimum alignment and template combination is based on the overall native-likeness of the resulting homology models, not just the secondary structure of the target. More specifically, I create homology models at several levels of optimization and refinement from alternative alignments and different template combinations. The resulting models are sorted according to the DOPE-HR score, and the best of them undergo side-chain optimization with SCWRL4, and extensive stereochemical tests with the programs PROCHECK and WHAT_CHECK to select the best of them. The whole procedure is streamlined and parallelized with a combination of bash and python scripts. However, it has been tested only on my cases and a few CASP9 targets. More details can be found at:
