Abstract/Summary A fundamental problem in molecular biology is the prediction of the three-dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence. However, molecular modeling to find the structure is at present intractable and is likely to remain so for some time, hence intermediate steps such as predicting which residues pairs are in contact have been developed.
