Kevin Karplus leads successful team in CASP

Monday, August 31, 1998

Professor Kevin Karplus has for the second time led a successful UCSC team in the international Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP). Participants submit structure models for different target proteins that have no published structure, and these predictions are compared with experimental models from x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. The results are discussed in a recent paper in Proteins: Structure, Function and Genetics.
