High dimensional feature space generally degrades classification in several applications. In this paper, we propose a strategy called gene masking, in which non-contributing dimensions are heuristically removed from the data to improve classification accuracy. Gene masking is implemented via a binary encoded genetic algorithm that can be integrated(More)
Protein structural class prediction (SCP) is as important task in identifying protein tertiary structure and protein functions. In this study, we propose a feature extraction technique to predict secondary structures. The technique utilizes bigram (of adjacent and k-separated amino acids) information derived from Position Specific Scoring Matrix (PSSM). The(More)
In biology, identifying the tertiary structure of a protein helps determine its functions. A step towards tertiary structure identification is predicting a protein's fold. Computational methods have been applied to determine a protein's fold by assembling information from its structural, physicochemical and/or evolutionary properties. It has been shown that(More)
Protein subcellular localization is an important topic in proteomics since it is related to a protein׳s overall function, helps in the understanding of metabolic pathways, and in drug design and discovery. In this paper, a basic approximation technique from natural language processing called the linear interpolation smoothing model is applied for predicting(More)
