PMID: 28439455
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.3139

[…] dca method gremlin () extends the concept of pseudolikelihood maximization, but also uses prior protein information such as secondary structure and amino acid separations using information from the svmcon program (). another method, evfold (), uses dca calculations to produce a set of top-ranked predicted contact pairs, and then uses filtering rules and physical constraint modeling […]

[…] helix‐helix interactions in tm proteins. they reported an accuracy of up to 70% per residue‐residue contact and up to 65% per helix‐helix interaction, slightly better than a similar method called svmcon []. in another line of research, barth et al.[] addressed the problem of helix‐helix interaction prediction by creating sequence profiles from a library of helix pairs whose spatial […]

[…] contacts and to contacts extracted from individual de novo 3d structure predictors. this assessment was conducted on the casp9 free modeling targets. for contact predictors, we selected svmcon [] - a method which we developed and one of the top contact predictors in casp9. it is worth noting that svmcon (participating as multicom-rank server) was also among the top contact […]

[…] to evaluate the accuracy and coverage for our gacs ensemble., contact map predictors participating in casp7 include betapro [], distill [], gpcpred [], profcon [], possum [], sam_t06_server [], svmcon [] and so on. table reports the performance of the seven automated contact map predictors in the casp7 experiment. the performance of our gacs ensemble is appended at the right end of table .

[…] on the 15 new fold (nf) targets of casp7. the average accuracies are 26% and 11%, respectively. through a comprehensive comparison of sequence-based and structure-based methods, including svm-seq, svmcon [], svm-lomets, lomets, and sam-t06 server, wu et al. have concluded that template-based methods are better than sequence-based methods on template-based modeling (tbm) targets, but worse […]
