CAPRI: Critical Assessment of PRediction of Interactions

Community wide experiment on the comparative evaluation of protein-protein docking for structure prediction

Hosted By EMBL/EBI-PDBe Group

We are announcing the imminent launch of CAPRI Round 42.

We are announcing the launch of CAPRI Round 42, with two x-ray structures of host-pathogen protein-protein hetero complexes of the cell adhesion protein CEACAM1 from human, with respectively, the cell adhesion proteins HopQ Type I, and HopQ Type II.

These targets are offered by Prof. Han Remaut (the Free University of Brussels, and the Vlaamse Institute voor Biotechnologie).

Detailed target information will be available when the prediction Round opens.

Please take note that the prediction timelines for this Round are particularly short in order to accommodate the authors’ publication schedule. There remains a remote possibility that the timelines may be extended to allow running the scoring challenge. Predictors are therefore requested to submit 100 models at the prediction deadline, as usual.

Documentation and Targets Round 42

  • Sep 25 - registration begins
Target T131 and T132
  • Oct 2 - prediction Round opens
  • Oct 4 - deadline for server submissions
  • Oct 16 - deadline for submitting predictions
  • Oct 18 - scoring Round set available (if author timing is extended)
  • Oct 25 - scoring Round submission deadline (if author timing is extended)

In registering, please scrupulously adhere to the registration rules, according to which only team leaders, or teams (with identified members) can submit predictions.


Scorers can download the server set of submissions from using the same login user/password as distributed for Capri round42. Full details and deadlines are given on this site.
