Here, we consider a two-level (four classes in level 1 and 27 folds in level 2) protein fold determination problem. We propose several new features and use some existing features including frequencies of adjacent residues, frequencies of residues separated by one residue, and triplets (trio) of amino acid compositions (AACs). The dimensionality of the trio(More)
In this paper we propose a new multilayer classifier architecture. The proposed hybrid architecture has two cascaded modules: feature extraction module and classification module. In the feature extraction module we use the multilayered perceptron (MLP) neural networks, although other tools such as radial basis function (RBF) networks can be used. In the(More)
We propose support vector machine (SVM) based hierarchical classification schemes for recognition of handwritten Bangla characters. A comparative study is made among multilayer perceptron, radial basis function network and SVM classifier for this 45 class recognition problem. SVM classifier is found to outperform the other classifiers. A fusion scheme using(More)
MOTIVATION Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a dementia that gets worse with time resulting in loss of memory and cognitive functions. The life expectancy of AD patients following diagnosis is ∼7 years. In 2006, researchers estimated that 0.40% of the world population (range 0.17-0.89%) was afflicted by AD, and that the prevalence rate would be tripled by 2050.(More)
In this paper, we propose some co-occurrence probability-based features for prediction of protein secondary structure. The features are extracted using occurrence/nonoccurrence of secondary structures in the protein sequences. We explore two types of features: position-specific (based on position of amino acid on fragments of protein sequences) as well as(More)
Motivation: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a dementia that gets worse with time resulting in loss of memory and cognitive functions. The life expectancy of AD patients following diagnosis is 7 years. In 2006, researchers estimated that 0.40% of the world population (range 0.17–0.89%) was afflicted by AD, and that the prevalence rate would be tripled by 2050.(More)
