An analysis of the predictability of subcellular locations is performed by using simple pattern recognition techniques in an attempt to capture the real dimensions of the problem at hand. Results show that there are some particular locations that does not need of high complexity classification models to be predicted with high accuracies, and some partial(More)
Proteins are the key elements on the path from genetic information to the development of life. The roles played by the different proteins are difficult to uncover experimentally as this process involves complex procedures such as genetic modifications, injection of fluorescent proteins, gene knock-out methods and others. The knowledge learned from each(More)
Predicting the sub-cellular localization of a protein can provide useful information to uncover its molecular functions. In this sense, numerous prediction techniques have been developed, which usually have been focused on global information of the protein or sequence alignments. However, several studies have shown that the functional nature of proteins is(More)
In this paper, a SVM-based method is implemented for the prediction of protein-protein interactions. This model is initially trained with a set of over 69.000 pairs of protein sequences based on documented positive interactions. Then, a cross-validation method is performed for estimating the accuracy of the system, showing acceptable performances in terms(More)
This work implements a type of string kernel called Mismatch kernel, together with a methodology involving Support Vector Machines (SVM) for solving 14 molecular function classification problems of land plants (Embryophyta). The implemented methodology uses metaheuristic bio-inspired algorithms for finding optimal hyperparameters of the SVM, to solve the(More)
A comparative analysis of four multi-label classification methods is performed in order to determine the best topology for the problem of protein function prediction, using support vector machines as base classifiers. Comparisons are done in terms of performance and computational cost of parallelized versions of the algorithms, for determining its(More)
Predicting the localization of a protein has become a useful practice for inferring its function. Most of the reported methods to predict subcellular localizations in Gram-negative bacterial proteins have shown a low false positive rate. However, some subcellular compartmens like "periplasm" and "extracellular medium" are difficult to predict and remain(More)
