This is actually a topic I am very interested in due to my work in measure and assessment of membrane protein model structure quality. My work provides a good test case study in the use of homology models, and illustrates the ‘limitations’ in using data to predict the best’ working model structure. …


Nowadays, with tools and technologies developed to make predictions to drive decisions, people boast about going where no one has gone before — the future. But, even within the context of the future they defined, there still is much uncertainty.

Our understanding in due of limits imposed by data drives us to adopt the more practicable context: that data about a subject is what we’re interested in in order to project ‘appropriate actions’ on the subject.

But how do we justify?

While predictions can be applied more accurately to solve narrow problems, it impose various complexities and consequences in solving…
