Protein fold recognition has been approached by threading an amino acid sequence onto a library of folds, calculating a sequence-structure compatibility score, and ranking these scores. Due to imperfections in the empirically derived pairwise potential functions and the necessarily heuristic approach to the sequence-structure alignment problem, the method benefits from the assessment of threaded models to evaluate the most probable structures among the list of possible folds.
