INTRODUCTION The production of biological information has become much greater than its consumption. The key issue now is how to organise and manage the huge amount of novel information to facilitate access to this useful and important biological information. One core problem in classifying biological information is the annotation of new protein sequences(More)
A genetic similarity algorithm is introduced in this study to find a group of semantically similar Gene Ontology terms. The genetic similarity algorithm combines semantic similarity measure algorithm with parallel genetic algorithm. The semantic similarity measure algorithm is used to compute the similitude strength between the Gene Ontology terms. Then,(More)
Few years back, Jaakkola and Haussler published a method of combining generative and discriminative approaches for detecting protein homologies. The method was a variant of support vector machines using a new kernel function called Fisher Kernel. They begin by training a generative hidden Markov model for a protein family. Then, using the model, they derive(More)
University Course Timetabling (UCT) is a complex problem and cannot be dealt with using only a few general principles. The complicated relationships between time periods, subjects and classrooms make it difficult to obtain feasible solution. Thus, finding feasible solution for UCT is a continually challenging problem. This paper presents a hybrid particle(More)
Gene expression data are expected to be of significant help in the development of efficient cancer diagnoses and classification platforms. In order to select a small subset of informative genes from the data for cancer classification, recently, many researchers are analyzing gene expression data using various computational intelligence methods. However, due(More)
