Contact prediction in protein modeling: scoring, folding and refinement of coarse-grained models


BMC Structural Biology, 8:36, 2008


<p>Several different methods for contact prediction succeeded within the Sixth Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP6). The most relevant were non-local contact predictions for targets from the most difficult categories: fold recognition-analogy and new fold. Such contacts could provide valuable structural information in case a template structure cannot be found in the PDB.</p>
