Number of contacts and reconstruction accuracy. a) RMSD values for the protein 1bkrA using Cα as contact definition, the size of the dots represent the total number of contacts in the contact map for a particular cutoff. The red curve is a linear fit to a polynomial. b) RMSD delta over delta of number of contacts against the cut-off for Cα contact definition for the average of the 60 proteins in the data set. The red curve is again a linear fit to a polynomial.
