How good are protein disorder prediction programmes actually?

Until now it was difficult to answer this question, as a good benchmark for testing these bioinformatics programmes was lacking. AU scientists, Dr. Jakob T. Nielsen and Dr. Frans A.A. Mulder present an analysis in Scientific Reports using a comprehensive compilation of experimental data from NMR spectroscopy.
