Some of the most interesting CASP11 targets through the eyes of their authors

Proteins. 2016 Sep;84 Suppl 1(Suppl Suppl 1):34-50. doi: 10.1002/prot.24942. Epub 2015 Nov 16.


The Critical Assessment of protein Structure Prediction (CASP) experiment would not have been possible without the prediction targets provided by the experimental structural biology community. In this article, selected crystallographers providing targets for the CASP11 experiment discuss the functional and biological significance of the target proteins, highlight their most interesting structural features, and assess whether these features were correctly reproduced in the predictions submitted to CASP11.
