CABS-fold: server for the de novo and consensus-based prediction of protein structure


Nucleic Acids Research, 41:W406-W411, 2013


The CABS-fold web server provides tools for protein structure prediction from sequence only (de novo modeling) and also using alternative templates (consensus modeling). The web server is based on the CABS modeling procedures ranked in previous CASP competitions (Critical Assessment of techniques for protein Structure Prediction) as one of the leading approaches for de novo< and template-based modeling. Except for template data, fragmentary distance restraints can also be incorporated into the modeling process. The web server output is a coarse-grained trajectory of generated conformations, its Jmol representation and predicted models in all-atom resolution (together with accompanying analysis). CABS-fold can be freely accessed at
