I wonder what you mean with '65% accurate model'. This "percentage correct"
measure is, as far as I know, always used in connection with algorithms for
the prediction of secondary structure (like the EMBL prediction server, xy%
of the residues assigned the correct secondary structure). But these secondary
structure predictions don't give a 3D model of the protein.
By the way, I don't think 65% is a good result.
