A Deep Learning Approach for Prediction of Protein Secondary Structure
The secondary structure of a protein is critical for establishing a link between the protein primary and tertiary structures. For this reason, it is important to design methods for accurate protein secondary structure prediction. Most of the existing computational techniques for protein structural and functional prediction are based onmachine learning with shallowframeworks. Different deep learning architectures have already been applied to tackle protein secondary structure prediction problem. In this study, deep learning based models, i.e., convolutional neural network and long short-Term memory for protein secondary structure prediction were proposed. The input to proposed models is amino acid sequences which were derived from CulledPDB dataset. Hyperparameter tuning with cross validation was employed to attain best parameters for the proposed models. The proposed models enables effective processing of amino acids and attain approximately 87.05% and 87.47% Q3 accuracy of protein secondary structure prediction for convolutional neural network and long short-Term memory models, respectively.
