Computes the folding free energy of proteins with known structure and sequence.
Sequences can be input either through a Multiple Sequence Alignment including the
sequence of at least one of the input PDB or through a list of mutations.
The folding free energy takes into account the native state as represented in one of
the input PDB files, the unfolded state, and the misfolded state (compact conformations
dissimilar from the native), modelled as a Random Energy Model (REM) up to the second
(REM2) or third (REM3) moment of the contact energy.
