The Continuous Automated Model EvaluatiOn (CAMEO) is a weekly, fully automated blind benchmarking experiment of three-dimensional protein prediction servers.

The website displays the results of the experiment for "public" servers. Registered users participating in the experiment can in addition access to the results of "development" servers.

Liability disclaimer

  • The CAMEO service is provided “as is”. In no event shall CAMEO or its developers be liable for any consequential, special, incidental, or indirect damages of any kind arising out of the use of CAMEO or its results.
  • CAMEO is not responsible for any problems on your server. This includes overloading the system or any other technical problems.
  • CAMEO will publicly display the results of your service in the context of other results and will apply computational tools on the results provided by your server, including, but not limited to, structure and model comparison tools and model quality assessment.
  • CAMEO reserves the right to exclude services with continued technical problems, low availability, or format problems.

This website uses Matomo, an open-source software tool, to compile access statistics and to analyse general usage behaviour on the website. This information is used to compile aggregated and anonymous statistics in order to improve our services and to enhance user’s experience. Matomo runs exclusively on servers managed by SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and no personal data is transmitted to Matomo or any other third party.

By default, Matomo is configured in such a way so that no personal data is collected. For example, when you visit our website, we may collect some data on your browsing experience such as your masked IP address (anonymized by removing the last two bytes), the web page you visited, when you visited and the website page you were redirected from.

The analytical reports generated by Matomo are only accessible by authorized SIB employees or members, or by duly authorized external consultants, who may be required to analyse, develop and/or regularly maintain certain sites. You can adjust your browser settings to disable cookies. This might, however, mean that you are not able to use all of the website’s functions.
