SECOND PROTEIN STRUCTURE PREDICTION EXPERIMENT
Applications are invited for attendance of the Second Meeting on the
Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction
(CASP2). The meeting will be the culmination of a community wide
experiment to determine the effectiveness of current prediction
methods. It is expected that over 800 blind predictions from more
than 50 prediction teams on approximately 40 different proteins will
have been received by the time the prediction season closes.
The purpose of the meeting is to determine what went right with the
predictions, what went wrong, if possible to understand why, and to
identify the promising directions for future work.
The meeting will be held at the Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific
Grove, California, December 12-16, 1996. Accommodation will be on
site. Support for the meeting has been requested from the U.S.
Department of Energy, National Institutes of Health, and National
Institute of Standards and Technology.
