New tools and expanded data analysis capabilities at the Protein Structure Prediction Center

Proteins. 2007;69 Suppl 8(S8):19-26. doi: 10.1002/prot.21653.


We outline the main tasks performed by the Protein Structure Prediction Center in support of the CASP7 experiment and provide a brief review of the major measures used in the automatic evaluation of predictions. We describe in more detail the software developed to facilitate analysis of modeling success over and beyond the available templates and the adopted Java-based tool enabling visualization of multiple structural superpositions between target and several models/templates. We also give an overview of the CASP infrastructure provided by the Center and discuss the organization of the results web pages available through
