Bj�rn Wallner, Huisheng Fang, Arne Elofsson
2003 Proteins: Structure, Function, and Bioinformatics  
Furthermore we show that the inclusion of another novel method, ProQ 2 , to evaluate the quality of the protein models improves the predictions. Proteins 2003;53:534 -541.  ...  Therefore, the success of Pmodeller and other consensus servers should be seen as a tribute to the collective of all developers of fold recognition servers.  ...  The success of Pmodeller and other consensus-based methods should really be attributed to the whole collective force of fold recognition method developers.  ...

Benchmarking consensus model quality assessment for protein fold recognition

Liam J McGuffin
2007 BMC Bioinformatics  
Results: The ModSSEA method is found to be an effective model quality assessment program for ranking multiple models from many servers, however further accuracy can be gained by using the consensus approach  ...  Several of the true MQAPs are also shown to add value to most individual fold recognition servers by improving model selection, when applied as a post filter in order to re-rank models.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported by a Research Councils United Kingdom (RCUK) Academic Fellowship.  ...

Jesper Lundström, Leszek Rychlewski, Janusz Bujnicki, Arne Elofsson
2008 Protein Science  
During recent years many protein fold recognition methods have been developed, based on different algorithms and using various kinds of information.  ...  Pcons attempts to select the best model out of those produced by six prediction servers, each using different methods.  ...  For each fold recognition server a primary neural network layer was trained to predict the quality of a model based on the confidence score reported by the server and the fraction of other similar models  ...

2007 Nucleic Acids Research  
The Meta Server ( provides improved automated tools for protein structure prediction and analysis using consensus.  ...  For more difficult targets the sequence is automatically submitted to publicly available fold-recognition servers that use more advanced approaches to find distant structural homologs.  ...  The 46 h time limit is set to allow for as many fold-recognition servers as possible to finish and provide the basis for the consensus analysis.  ...

K. Ginalski, A. Elofsson, D. Fischer, L. Rychlewski
2003 Bioinformatics  
The algorithm resembles methods of selecting models generated using ab initio folding simulations.  ...  Motivation: Consensus structure prediction methods (meta-predictors) have higher accuracy than individual structure prediction algorithms (their components).  ...  This addition is likely to boost the quality of the predictions.  ...

2003 Nucleic Acids Research  
Rigorous assessments of protein structure prediction have demonstrated that fold recognition methods can identify remote similarities between proteins when standard sequence search methods fail.  ...  Foldrecognition results (target-template alignments) are converted into full-atom 3D models and the quality of these models is uniformly assessed.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We are grateful to developers of the protein fold recognition servers who kindly agreed to have them included in our metaserver, in particular Drs Arne Elofsson, Daniel  ...

Contact prediction in protein modeling: Scoring, folding and refinement of coarse-grained models

Dorota Latek, Andrzej Kolinski
2008 BMC Structural Biology  
The most relevant were nonlocal contact predictions for targets from the most difficult categories: fold recognition-analogy and new fold.  ...  According to our results, the best performing were the contacts with the accuracy balanced with the coverage, obtained either from the best two predictors only or by a consensus from as many predictors  ...  This seems to be especially useful in the structure modeling of new folds, for which meta-predictors (Bioinfo [22] etc.) based on the consensus of fold recognition methods do not yield any reliable templates  ...

Critically assessing the state-of-the-art in protein structure prediction

D T Jones
2001 The Pharmacogenomics Journal  
One of the most tantalising 'grand challenges' in structural biology is to solve the problem of predicting the structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence alone.  ...  Although this problem appeals to many researchers on a purely academic level, the practical importance of protein structure prediction has become particularly clear with the release of the first draft  ...  (and hence the 3-D models) are of very poor quality.  ...
