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

From: A fully open-source framework for deep learning protein real-valued distances

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.
