Identifies the heat shock protein (HSP) families using pseudo reduced amino acid alphabet composition. iHSP-PseRAAAC is a web-server and a predictor developed by incorporating the amino acid data into the general form of pseudo amino acid composition. The overall success rate achieved by this method in identifying the functional types of HSPs among the aforementioned six types was more than 87%, which was derived by the jack-knife test on a stringent benchmark dataset.
