An ambiguity principle for assigning protein structural domains

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5235333
PMID: 28097215
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1600552

[…] ible folds and, consequently, the quality of protein structure predictions. This can be verified by using target structures from the eighth edition of the Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction (CASP8) competition, for which the modeling difficulty is lowered when treating the structural domains separately rather than the whole protein chain (), the challenge being reduced to the relative pos […]


BeEP Server: using evolutionary information for quality assessment of protein structure models

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3692104
PMID: 23729471
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkt453

[…] ein structure models made available for the TS category (Tertiary Structure prediction) in the 8th community-wide experiment on the Critical Assessment of techniques for protein Structure Prediction (CASP8). In general, the CASP experiment is expected to involve heterogeneous sets of good quality structure models, as they are built ad hoc following diverse protocols. The predicted decoys were down […]


Fragment free approach to protein folding using conditional neural fields

PMCID: 2881378
PMID: 20529922
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btq193

[…] results indicate that our CNF method clearly outperforms the CRF method on most of the test proteins. Previously, we have compared our CRF method with the popular fragment-based Robetta server in the CASP8 blind prediction and shown that our CRF method is on average better than Robetta on mainly-alpha or small beta proteins (Zhao et al., ). This article further confirms our advantage on mainly-alp […]
