||The recent NEWCT-9P version of the coarse-grained UNRES force field for proteins, with scale-consistent formulas for the local and correlation terms, has been tested in the CASP13 experiment of the blind prediction of protein structure, in the ab initio, contact-assisted, and data-assisted modes. Significant improvement of the performance has been observed with respect to the CASP11 and CASP12 experiments (by over 10 GDT_TS units for the ab initio mode predictions and by over 15 GDT_TS units for the contact-assisted prediction, respectively), which is a result of introducing scale-consistent terms and improved handling of contact-distance restraints. As in previous CASP exercises, UNRES ranked higher in the free modeling category than in the general category that included template based modeling targets. Use of distance restraints from the predicted contacts, albeit many of them were wrong, resulted in the increase of GDT_TS by over 8 units on average and introducing sparse restraints from small-angle X-ray/neutron scattering and chemical cross-link-mass-spectrometry experiments, and ambiguous restraints from nuclear magnetic resonance experiments has also improved the predictions by 8.6, 9.7, and 10.7 GDT_TS units on average, respectively.
