Protein Contact Prediction and Folding by Deep Learning

Ab initio folding is one of the most challenging problems in Computational Biology. Recently contact-assisted folding has made some progress on this problem, but it requires accurate inter-residue contact prediction, which by existing methods can only be achieved on some proteins with a very large number of sequence homologs.
