- To display the Glide XP results from a pose viewer file (jobname_pv.mae) in a table of XP terms for each ligand.
- To provide 3D visualizations for XP terms. Information for these visualizations is read from the pose viewer file. The descriptor file (jobname.xpdes), which is also generated by Glide XP, can be used instead; it must be in the same directory as the pose viewer file.
- To allow selective evaluation of ligands (and groups of ligands) within the table. This helps you analyze ligands separately during the screening process.
If you forgot to check the 'Write XP descriptor information' option and have results of a long XP job and don't want to rerun it in order to generate the descriptors, you could run an XP job on your previous results with the "Ligand sampling" option set to "None (score in place only)". This will re-score the ligands (and add XP descriptors if you've selected that option), which is much faster than re-docking the ligands.
