Two-body inter-residue contact potentials for proteins have often been extracted and extensively used for threading. Here, we have developed a new scheme to derive four-body contact potentials as a way to consider protein interactions in a more cooperative model. We use several datasets of protein native structures to demonstrate that around 500 chains are… CONTINUE READING
