RASP is a RApid Side-chain Predictor. To achieve a much faster speed with a comparable accuracy to the best existing methods, the authors not only employ the clash elimination strategy of CIS-RR, but also carefully optimize energy terms and integrate different search algorithms. In comprehensive benchmark testings, RASP is over one order of magnitude faster (~ 40 times over CIS-RR) than the recently developed methods, while achieving comparable or even better accuracy.
