MaxBench: evaluation of sequence and structure comparison methods

Bioinformatics. 2002 Mar;18(3):494-5. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/18.3.494.


Summary: MaxBench is a web-based system available for evaluating the results of sequence and structure comparison methods, based on the SCOP protein domain classification. The system makes it easy for developers to both compare the overall performance of their methods to standard algorithms and investigate the results of individual comparisons.
