Prediction of Protein Function Using Ant Colony Sequence Alignment
Abstract:Prediction of protein function is the most challenging problem of the post-genomic era. For partially characterized proteins related to Alzheimer's disease, we propose a method for predicting their finer functions by aligning sequence based on ant colony clustering algorithm. The results show that the proposed approach is able to reliably find finer functions for the proteins related to Alzheimer's disease with high precision. The predicted finer functions are highly valuable for guiding lab research to study the molecular mechanism of Alzheimer's disease.
