Hi All,

Does it make sense that when the box for "use statistical model for missing atoms" is picked under the GUI's "Global refinement parameters options" that one might obtain "better" Free-R values? I seem to be seeing that for a 2.3 A refinement of a crystal with a monomer of 550 residues in the asymmetric unit and 68% solvent content. When I uncheck the box I get about a 3% increase in Free-R. Is there more information about what this option is actually doing and when it might be useful to employ?
