QUARK is a computer algorithm for ab initio protein structure prediction and protein peptide folding, which aims to construct the correct protein 3D model from amino acid sequence only. QUARK models are built from small fragments (1-20 residues long) by replica-exchange Monte Carlo simulation under the guide of an atomic-level knowledge-based force field. QUARK was ranked as the No 1 server in Free-modeling (FM) in CASP9 and CASP10 experiments. Since no global template information is used in QUARK simulation, the server is suitable for proteins that do not have homologous templates in the PDB library. Go to example to view an example of QUARK output. The server is only for non-commercial use. Questions about the QUARK server can be posted at the Service System Discussion Board.
