Human Protein Function Prediction using Decision Tree Induction

  title={Human Protein Function Prediction using Decision Tree Induction},
  author={Manpreet Singh and Parminder Kaur Wadhwa and Parvinder Singh Sandhu},
To overcome the problem of exponentially increasing protein data, drug discoverers need efficient machine learning techniques to predict the functions of proteins which are responsible for various diseases in human body. The existing decision tree induction methodology C4.5 uses the entropy calculation for best attribute selection. The proposed method develops a new decision tree induction technique in which uncertainty measure is used for best attribute selection. This is based on the study of… CONTINUE READING
