    In order to use a predicted protein structure one needs to know how good it is, as the utility of a model depends on its quality. To this aim, many Model Quality Assessment Programs (MQAP) have been developed over the last decade, with MQAP also being assessed at the CASP competition. We present...

    Motivation: Programs that evaluate the quality of a protein structural model are important both for validating the structure determination procedure and for guiding the model-building process. Such programs are based on properties of native structures that are generally not expected for faulty...
