Scatter MG score-Hamming distance plot for the Steepest Descent (Panel (a)) and the SAMC (Panel (b)) for all our targets. Here HD is the Hamming distance between our proposed sequence and the original murine one. The SAMC trajectories start at the murine sequences, on the left (HD = 0, MG-score around 4500), then jump immediately to the region at the bottom-right of high HD, low score (highly non-human sequences, but very different from the original murine). Notice that all trajectories roughly overlap in this region: there is no memory of their different, and fixed, CDR sequences, and we witness a basically free exploration of the sequence space. Then, when the temperature falls below a certain threshold, the trajectories move to the top-left region, of highly human sequences with score and HD depending on the fixed CDR regions of the original sequence.
