Announcement: Details of second prediction experiment, CASP2

This is an announcement for those working on methods for protein structure

Details of the 2nd protein structure prediction experiment (CASP2) are now
available from the following locations.


Targets for prediction are now being collected and will shortly be
available for prediction.

In order to receive information about the experiment, targets and receive a
registration code that will be required to submit predictions, please use
the on-line registration form.  Registration forms are also available on
request from casp2 at mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk for those without WWW access.

For CASP2, predictions will only be accepted in predefined machine readable
formats.  Some aspects of the assessment will also be carried out
automatically.  Draft proposals for the assessment criteria and some
examples of draft submission formats are available for comment.  Comments
must be received by 1st March, after which criteria will be finalised.
