Structure prediction. How good are we?

Curr Biol. 1995 May 1;5(5):488-90. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(95)00099-6.


Recent successes show that, in certain circumstances, protein secondary structures can be predicted with high accuracy. How far are we from being able to predict the complete structure of a protein from its sequence?
