[…] the proportion of satisfied predicted contacts can be used to discriminate between correct (tm-score > 0.5) and incorrect models. for this analysis, we used the 10 000 decoys generated using saint2 and metapsicov stage 1 for each of the 41 protein in our pdb-representative dataset. we have considered the proportions of satisfied long-range, short-range and all-range contacts. our results […]

[…] of a protein starting purely from its sequence, and not relying on the use of an existing structure as a template. popular examples of ab initio modelling software include rosetta, quark and saint2 (simons et al., 1997; rohl et al., 2004; xu et al., 2012; ellis et al., 2010). ab initio modelling for globular proteins, however, is accurate only for modest chain lengths. for example, […]

[…] output by psicov, freecontact, ccmpred, bbcontacts, metapsicov stage 1, metapsicov stage 2 and metapsicov hb were used as input for our cotranslational template-free structure prediction method saint2. an outline of our fragment-based de novo structure predictor saint2 is given in ., we generated 10 000 decoys for each set of predicted contacts and for all targets in our pdb-representative […]
