Prediction of Protein B-Factors Using Multi-Class Bounded SVM
Abstract:In this paper, we propose the adoption of the bounded support vector machine (BSVM) to predict the B-factors of residues based on a number of distinctive properties of residues. Due to the ability of multi-class classification of the BSVM, we can elaborately distinguish our targets and obtain relatively higher 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.
