    public interface MultipleSuperimposer
    Interface for Multiple Alignment superposition algorithms.

    There can be several implementations of a superimposer, because there is not a unique superposition of multiple structures given their residue equivalencies, and their running times are asymptotically different.

      • superimpose

        void superimpose​(MultipleAlignment alignment)
                  throws StructureException
        Superimpose all structures from a MultipleAlignment. The superposition is done for all individual BlockSets. If there is only one BlockSet.

        At a minimum, this should set the transformation matrices for the individual BlockSets.

        This method only calculates and sets the transformation 4D Matrices. If any score is needed it should be calculated and set separately afterwards with MultipleAlignmentScorer.

        alignment - MultipleAlignment specifying the aligned residues (via the blocksets) and the atoms to align (via the ensemble).
