3D-Jury is a metaserver that aggregates and compares models from various protein structure prediction servers. It takes in groups of predictions made by a collection of servers and assigns each pair a 3D-Jury score, based on structural similarity. The score is generated by counting the number of Cα atoms in the two predictions within 3.5 Å of each other after being superpositioned. To improve accuracy of the final model, users can select the prediction servers from which to aggregate results.[1]

The Robetta automatic protein structure prediction server incorporates 3D-Jury into its prediction pipeline.[2]
