# Table 1 Evaluation metrics used for evaluation of predicted distances and/or contacts.

Prediction Metric Description
Distances $$MAE_{8}$$ MAE of the predicted long-range distances with corresponding true distances shorter than 8 Å
$$MAE_{12}$$ MAE of the predicted long-range distances with corresponding true distances shorter than 12 Å
Contacts $$\hbox {P}_{\mathrm{L}}$$ Precision of top L long-range predicted contacts
$$\hbox {P}_{\mathrm{NC}}$$ Precision of top NC long-range predicted contacts
1. L stands for the length of the protein sequence in the native (true) structure, and NC is the number of true contacts in the structure.
