Many template-based modeling TBM methods have been developed over the recent years that allow for protein structure prediction and for the study of structure-function relationships for proteins. One major problem all TBM algorithms face, however, is their unsatisfactory performance when proteins under consideration are low-homology. To improve the performance of TBM methods for such targets, a novel model evaluation method was developed here, and named MEFTop. Our novel method focuses on evaluating the topology by using two novel groups of features. These novel features included secondary structure element SSE contact information and 3-dimensional topology information. By combining MEFTop algorithm with FR-t5, a threading program developed by our group, we found that this modified TBM program, which was named FR-t5-M, exhibited significant improvements in predictive abilities for low-homology protein targets. We further showed that the MEFTop could be a generalized method to improve threading programs for low-homology protein targets. The softwares FR-t5-M and MEFTop are available to non-commercial users at our website: http:-jianglab.ibp.ac.cn-lims-FRt5M-FRt5M.html.
