Predicting the function of a protein from its sequence is a long-standing goal of bioinformatic research. While sequence similarity is the most popular tool used for this purpose, sequence motifs may also subserve this goal. Here we develop a motif-based method consisting of applying an unsupervised motif extraction algorithm (MEX) to all enzyme sequences,(More)
Neuromimetic devices—artificial electronics that mimic the brain's neurons—could be used to study how the brain works or to design circuits that borrow from the brain's computing ability. Such devices emulate neurons and the synapses between them with voltage­driven circuits that exchange signals in a connected network. But conventional circuits cannot(More)
Specific Peptides (SPs) have been shown [22] to specify the functions of 93% of the enzymes on which they occur. In this work we will focus on the biological importance and possible roles of SPs in the realisation of enzymatic functions. SPs are shown to provide correct functional classification in problems where conventional methods, based on sequence or(More)
