[…] nnotations of proteins to make prediction. These weak-label learning methods explicitly consider only the flat relationships among labels. More recently, Yu et al. [] proposed a method called PILL to predict protein functions using incomplete hierarchical labels. PILL takes advantage of the hierarchical and flat relationships among functional labels, along with the PPI network to replenish the mis […]
