The top part of the table shows the comparison of the average rank of the first correct rotamers between our proteindependent rotamer library with Dunbrack’s 2010 library as input (P10) and Dunbrack’s backbonedependent library proposed in 2010 (D10). The other part of the table shows the comparison of the average probability of finding correct rotamers in the top 1, 2 and 3 rotamers of P10 and D10, respectively.
