Using protein structural and contact information with machine learning techniques. QAcon is a single-model quality assessment method utilizing structural features, physicochemical properties, and residue contact predictions. It is based on machine learning and various protein features, which is ranked as one of the best single-model quality assessment methods according to the critical assessment of techniques for protein structure prediction (CASP) official evaluation results.
