Hierarchical multilabel classification (HMC) is a variant of classification where instances may belong to multiple classes organized in a hierarchy. The task is relevant for several application domains. This paper presents an empirical study of decision tree approaches to HMC in the area of functional genomics. We compare learning a single HMC tree (which(More)
The basis of science is the hypothetico-deductive method and the recording of experiments in sufficient detail to enable reproducibility. We report the development of Robot Scientist "Adam," which advances the automation of both. Adam has autonomously generated functional genomics hypotheses about the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and experimentally tested(More)
MOTIVATION Many published manuscripts contain experiment protocols which are poorly described or deficient in information. This means that the published results are very hard or impossible to repeat. This problem is being made worse by the increasing complexity of high-throughput/automated methods. There is therefore a growing need to represent experiment(More)
MOTIVATION Data Mining Prediction (DMP) is a novel approach to predicting protein functional class from sequence. DMP works even in the absence of a homologous protein of known function. We investigate the utility of different ways of representing protein sequence in DMP (residue frequencies, phylogeny, predicted structure) using the Escherichia coli genome(More)
MOTIVATION The genome of Arabidopsis thaliana, which has the best understood plant genome, still has approximately one-third of its genes with no functional annotation at all from either MIPS or TAIR. We have applied our Data Mining Prediction (DMP) method to the problem of predicting the functional classes of these protein sequences. This method is based(More)
ANVIL is a system designed for the retrieval of images annotated with short captions. It uses NLP techniques to extract dependency structures from captions and queries, and then applies a robust matching algorithm to recursively explore and compare them. There are currently two main interfaces to ANVIL: a list-based display and a 2D spatial layout that(More)
