CEthreader (Contact Eigenvector-based threader) is a new threading algorithm that combines contact-map with profile-based alignments for protein fold recognition. Starting from a query sequence, CEthreader first creates ab initio contact prediction by coupling deep MSA and convolutional residual network training through ResPRE. The predicted 2D contact-map is then converted to a set of single-body Eigenvectors through the Eigen-decomposition technique, which are subsequently integrated with the profile and secondary structure scoring function to guide the dynamic programming alignment process. Large-scale benchmark shows that the combination of contact-map and profile alignments can help improve the accuracy of fold-recognition in particular for proteins that lack close-homology templates in the PDB. If you have questions and comments on CEthreader, please post them at the Service System Discussion Board. ( >>more about CEthreader ...)
