AbstractThe method for protein-structure prediction, which combines the physics-based coarse-grained UNRES force field with knowledge-based modeling, has been developed further and tested in the 13th Community Wide Experiment on the Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP13). The method implements restraints from the consensus fragments common to server models. In this work, the server models to derive fragments have been chosen on the basis of quality assessment; a fully automatic fragment-selection procedure has been introduced, and Dynamic Fragment Assembly pseudopotentials have been fully implemented. The Global Distance Test Score (GDT_TS), averaged over our “Model 1” predictions, increased by over 10 units with respect to CASP12 for the free-modeling category to reach 40.82. Our “Model 1” predictions ranked 20 and 14 for all and free-modeling targets, respectively (upper 20.2% and 14.3% of all models submitted to CASP13 in these categories, respectively), compared to 27 (upper 21.1%) and 24 (upper 18.9%) in CASP12, respectively. For oligomeric targets, the Interface Patch Similarity (IPS) and Interface Contact Similarity (ICS) averaged over our best oligomer models increased from 0.28 to 0.36 and from 12.4 to 17.8, respectively, from CASP12 to CASP13, and top-ranking models of 2 targets (H0968 and T0997o) were obtained (none in CASP12). The improvement of our method in CASP13 over CASP12 was ascribed to the combined effect of the overall enhancement of server-model quality, our success in selecting server models and fragments to derive restraints, and improvements of the restraint and potential-energy functions.
