Sequence2Vec: a novel embedding approach for modeling transcription factor binding affinity landscape

PMCID: 5870668
PMID: 28961686

[…] ding sequences as a hidden Markov model (HMM). However, instead of performing standard maximum likelihood estimation for these models, we devised a new message passing-like embedding approach, called Sequence2Vec, which maps these HMMs into a common nonlinear feature space and uses these embedded features to build a nonlinear predictive model. Importantly, unlike many existing methods that conside […]
