  Description     : NORSnet - identifies unstructured loops from sequence
NORSnet was trained to distinguish between very long contiguous segments with
non-regular secondary structure (NORS regions) and well-folded proteins.
NORSnet was trained on predicted information rather than on experimental data.
Therefore, it was optimized on a large data, which is not biased by today's
experimental means of capturing disorder. Thus, NORSnet reached into regions
in sequence space that are not covered by the specialized disorder predictors.
One disadvantage of this approach is that it is not optimal for the
identification of the "average" disordered region.
