First sorry for repeating this question but I really need to get straight with randomness in rosetta and it would be great to have a good explanation of that somewhere on the web, for example on this forum.
I want to run multiple rosetta instances for the same protein on several computer clusters. From the manual and previous posts I can see two options:
1) -constant_seed -jran
Which one is better? I think the commonly used is option 1). But how this differs from 2) ? Does they do the same?
Is there any constraint on selection of the particular integers from 1 000 000 to 4 000 000 in -jran? If I am to submit 100 jobs on cluster 1 and 100 jobs on cluster 2 I can just simply use 1 000 000 to 1 000 099 on cluster 1 and 1 000 100 to 1 000 199 on cluster 2? Or is it more sophisticated?
Thanks for your help,
