Near-Native Protein Loop Sampling Using Nonparametric Density Estimation Accommodating Sparcity
RMSD of the best candidate versus RMSD of the best template. The diagonal line is unity. Points below the line indicate predictions better than the best template. The inset shows the percentage of better and worse predictions in each RMSD bin. When the RMSD of the best templates are below 1 Å, the chances our methods improve the loop are about 38%. When they are between in 1–2 Å, the chances are higher than 75%. In the 2–3 Å range, chances of improvement are higher than 93%. For higher than 3 Å, the loop structures are always improved.
