Hello, everyone, i am new to the mfold software, i just predicted the secondary structure of my RNA, and opened the pdf output, there is a line at the bottom
"dG = -2.09 [Initially -7.50] 11Jan23-22-15-22",

i also opened the "thermodynamic details", it reads

Structure 1
11Jan23-22-15-22
ΔG = -7.50

i am confused which one should be the free energy value? "dG = -2.09" or "ΔG = -7.50"?

Thanks!
