Genome sequencing projects are producing linear amino acid sequences, but full understanding of the biological role of these proteins will require knowledge of their structure and function. Although experimental structure determination methods are providing high-resolution structure information about a subset of the proteins, computational structure prediction methods will provide valuable information for the large fraction of sequences whose structures will not be determined experimentally… Expand
Protein Structure Prediction and Databases
TLDR
The Protein Modelling Portal unites data from these and other databases, and provides an independent system for model evaluation called CAMEO, which combines data from MODELLER and SWISS-MODEL, the two most popular computational tools for homology modelling. Expand
Bioinformatics methods to predict protein structure and function
TLDR
A set of protocols to predict protein structure from sequence is presented and distinctions among the three types of project are given. Expand
Assessment of protein structure predictions
TLDR
Comparison protein structure modeling is filling the gap between the known sequence and structure spaces in the post-genomic era in annotating, understanding, and modifying the function of proteins. Expand
Protein structure and function prediction using kernel methods
Experimental methods to determine the structure and function of proteins have not been able to keep up with the high-throughput sequencing technologies. As a result, there is an over abundance ofExpand
Protein structure prediction and analysis as a tool for functional genomics.
TLDR
The current approaches to protein structure prediction from sequence data are discussed, including the ab initio prediction of new folds, methods of fold recognition and comparative modelling based on homology. Expand
Prediction of Structural and Functional Aspects of Protein: In-Silico Approach
TLDR
This chapter covers the applications of modeled protein structures and unravels the relationship between pure sequence information and three-dimensional structure, which continues to be one of the greatest challenges in molecular biology. Expand
Protein Tertiary Structures: Prediction from Amino Acid Sequences
TLDR
This work states that there are a limited number of protein folds and that most protein sequences will fold into one of these limited globular structures, and that a wide variety of methods exist for the prediction of 3D structure from protein sequence. Expand
Protein Structure Prediction
The structure of an ordered protein is essential for the understanding of its function. Even though the number of experimental available proteins is exponentially increasing over the last years,Expand

Comparative protein structure modeling of genes and genomes.
TLDR
There is a need to develop an automated, rapid, robust, sensitive, and accurate comparative modeling pipeline applicable to whole genomes and to encourage new kinds of applications for the many resulting models, based on their large number and completeness at the level of the family, organism, or functional network.

From fold predictions to function predictions: Automation of functional site conservation analysis for functional genome predictions
TLDR
An automated assessment of function conservation is used to analyze the relation between fold and function similarity for a large number of fold predictions and it is shown that identifying low significance predictions with a high level of functional residue conservations can be used to extend the prediction sensitivity for fold prediction methods.

Automated structure-based prediction of functional sites in proteins: applications to assessing the validity of inheriting protein function from homology in genome annotation and to protein docking.
TLDR
It is shown that one can employ a strategy that uses a structure-based prediction of protein functional sites to assess the reliability of functional inheritance and automated and benchmarked a method based on the evolutionary trace approach. Expand

TLDR
The fold assignment, comparative protein structure modeling, and model evaluation were automated completely and resulted in all-atom 3D models for substantial segments of 1,071 of the yeast proteins, only 40 of which have had their 3D structure determined experimentally. Expand
Functional inferences from blind ab initio protein structure predictions.
TLDR
How functional insights can be obtained from low-resolution predicted structures are illustrated using examples from blind ab initio structure predictions from the third and fourth critical assessment of structure prediction (CASP3, CASP4) experiments. Expand
Completeness in structural genomics
TLDR
This work evaluates different strategies for optimizing information return on effort and concludes that the strategy that maximizes structural coverage requires about seven times fewer structure determinations compared with the strategy in which targets are selected at random. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that by this modeling procedure, the maximum of each of these mammalian serine proteases is constructed directly from the experimentally determined structures and the necessity to build from intuition or from energy considerations is greatly reduced. Expand
A new method for building protein conformations from sequence alignments with homologues of known structure.
TLDR
The conformation of the human pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor is predicted using simple rules by which multiple sequence alignments can be translated into distance and chirality constraints, which are then used as input for distance geometry calculations. Expand
Recent improvements in prediction of protein structure by global optimization of a potential energy function
TLDR
The resulting lowest-energy structures of the target proteins agreed with the experimental structures in many respects and constitute an important step toward the ab initio prediction of protein structure solely from the amino acid sequence. Expand

TLDR
F fold assignment for the proteins encoded by the small genome of Mycoplasma genitalium is described and extrapolation suggests that folds will be assigned to most soluble proteins in the next decade. Expand
