Thanks for the suggestions again, Elaine!
For my particular case calculation of the contact pairs from the
MDmovies produced reasonable results.
Going to the analysis of the output logs
1) what determine the statistical value - at the end of each string e.g
ALA 252.B vdw GLY 75.C 1.4
ALA 71.C vdw ILE 117.B 1
ASP 178.B vdw GLY 54.C 1.2
GLN 120.B vdw HIS 53.C 1.2
ARG 198.B vdw GLU 64.C 0.6
ALA 252.B vdw ASN 68.C 1.4
does the value of 1.4 corresponds to most likely contact (observed on
bigger number of snapshots) than 0.6 for intance?
2) Obtaining two such logs where the string order (contact pairs
ranged to its statistical weights) are mixed within it- what are the
trivial suggestion for the comparison such two logs to establish
shared contact pairs with equal statistical weights?
Thanks!

Maybe if you had a large number of snapshots (frames) for each of the two ensembles, you could take several different samples from each one (thus multiple contact maps from each ensemble) and then somehow use all those edge values to calculate some statistics. However, I am not a statistical expert and cannot advise on what methodology would be valid or most appropriate for your data.
