Item description for Automated Gene Function Prediction- Applying Ontology and Machine Learning by Vinayagam Arunachalam...
The objective of biological research is to understand the structural and the functional aspects of life. Though living organisms are diverse in almost every aspect, they are made of cells, and share the same machinery for their basic functions. The structural and functional aspect of life is traceable to genes, given that the information from the genes determine the protein composition and thereby the function of the cell. Hence, predicting the functions of individual genes is the gate way for understanding the blueprint of life. The rationale behind the ongoing genome sequencing projects is to utilize the sequence information to understand the genes and their functions. The exponential increase in the amount of sequence information enunciated the need for an automated approach to acquire knowledge about their biological function. This book introduces the general strategies used in the automated annotation of genes and protein sequences. Specifically, it describes a method utilizing the machine learning approach to predict gene function. This book is addressed to researchers involved in predicting gene function and applying machine learning algorithms to other biological problems.
