Prediction of Protein Secondary Structure Using Improved Two-Level Neural Network Architecture
In this paper we propose constructing an improved two-level neural network to predict protein secondary structure. Firstly, we code the whole protein composition information as the inputs to the first-level network besides the evolutionary information. Secondly, we calculate the reliability score for each residue position based on the output of the first-level network, and the role of the second-level network is to take full advantage of the residues with a higher reliability score to impact the neighboring residues with a lower one for improving the whole prediction accuracy. Thirdly, considering it is indeed a problem that the target protein can be lost in the multiple sequence alignment we propose to code single sequence into the second-level network. The experimental results show that our proposed method can efficiently improve the prediction accuracy.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
