Statistical analysis of
representative 60 pairs
A new encoding approach, the D2 coding
has been proposed, but what
for and what its advantages are remains unclear. To demonstrate that
this approach is capable of identifying conformational changes in
proteins, one must 1) use a specifically defined validation dataset, 2)
a well-defined strict testing protocol, and 3) compare his approach to
the existing methods.
coding method was
compared to three existing methods: the PB coding , the
coding method used by Kuznetsov (and its variation) , and the DSSP
