The development of an energy or scoring function for protein structure prediction is greatly enhanced by testing the function on a set of computer-generated conformations (decoys) to determine whether it can readily distinguish native-like conformations from nonnative ones. We have created "Decoys 'R' Us," a database containing many such sets of conformations, to provide a resource that allows scoring functions to be improved.
