I have given some structures for folding. In the general data two parameters for free energy is mentioned:
Initial free energy
Final free energy

I wanted to know which parameter is relevant for the folded srtructure, that is, which gives the true indication about the stability of the structure? Lower the free energy higher stability, whether we should consider the initial or the final?
