Model.assess_normalized_dope() — assess a model with the normalized DOPE method


This command assesses the quality of the model using the normalized DOPE method. This is a Z-score; positive scores are likely to be poor models, while scores lower than -1 or so are likely to be native-like.

The normalized DOPE score is derived from the statistics of raw DOPE scores6.4. See Selection.assess_dope() for more information on these raw scores.

When using AutoModel or LoopModel, automatic normalized DOPE assessment of each model can be requested by adding assess.normalized_dope to AutoModel.assess_methods or LoopModel.loop.assess_methods respectively.
