Design of an optimal Chebyshev-expanded discrimination function for globular proteins.


We describe the construction of a scoring function designed to model the free energy of protein folding. An optimization technique is used to determine the best functional forms of the hydrophobic, residue-residue and hydrogen-bonding components of the potential. The scoring function is expanded by use of Chebyshev polynomials, the coefficients of which are… (More)
