[…] c Iterated BLAST). Kumar et al. [] proposed an improved approach for protein function prediction by exploiting the connectivity properties of prominent proteins. Yu et al. [] proposed a method called Predicting Protein Function using Multiple Kernels (ProMK). ProMK iteratively optimizes the phases of learning optimal weights and reduces the empirical loss of multi-label classifier for each of the […]


Integrating multiple networks for protein function prediction

[…] the next subsection). The Fmax values on the first three networks progressively decrease, and the weights assigned by MNet and SW to these networks also decrease. In contrast, the weights assigned by ProMK do not follow this trend. ProMK assigns larger weights to the 2nd and 3rd networks. The Fmax values on the next three (4-th, 5-th, and 6-th) networks, as well as the weights assigned by MNet, pr […]
