Abstract: Accurate prediction of protein function in humans is important for understanding biological processes at the molecular level in biomedicine and drug design. Over a third of proteins are commonly held to bind metal, and ∼10% of human proteins, to bind zinc. Therefore, an initial step in protein function prediction frequently involves predicting metal ion binding. In recent years, methods have been developed to predict a set of residues in 3D space forming the metal-ion binding site, often with a high degree of …
