[…] component in a flexible docking prediction in combination with explicit conformational sampling scheme, such as "ab initio" structure modeling methods (e.g. rosetta [], tasser [], cabs [], touchstone [],) and molecular dynamics approaches [,], that are aimed at handling alternative conformation explicitly. since even the state-of-the-art ab initio modeling methods are still not capable […]

[…] second, data on 20 small proteins (< 120 residues) were used. i-tasser folded four of them with a cα-rmsd < 2.5å. the average cα-rmsd of the i-tasser models was 3.9å, whereas it was 5.9å using touchstone-ii software. finally, 20 non-homologous small proteins (< 120 residues) were taken from the pdb library. an average cα-rmsd of 3.9å was obtained for the third benchmark, with seven […]
