Improvement of objective scores after refinement (BAliBASE dataset). Histograms showing the relative improvement after refinement for four objective scores: a) alignment score b) conservation score (SCORECONS score) c) norMD score and d) information content for the BAliBASE 3.0 alignment dataset are plotted. The X-axis represents bins of relative improvement of the objective score while the Y-axis shows the percentage of alignments. Relative improvement of objective score is measured as the difference between the final scores after application of REFINER, RF and RASCAL method divided by the final score obtained from default alignment program output.
