  1. Note that some data are extracted from Table 3 in literature [10]. The eight predictors are evaluated on the 13 CASP7 domains which can be downloaded at the CASP7 web site ( The evaluation was based on the top L/5 predicted contacts whose corresponding residue pair separating no less than 24 residues in sequence, where L is the length of the protein chain.
