  1. Results are given for the 40 test cases. MI variants are listed in descending order of contact versus non-contact precision, i.e. best to worst classifier of contact residues. The probability of randomly selecting a contact residue from all surface residues is 24.5%. This probability changes to 24.4% when using the reduced alphabet amino acid set because residues are lost as the entropy of their corresponding MSA column reduces to 0.
