Current Research

Computational prediction of protein function is an important field in functional genomics. Gene function prediction is a Hierarchical multi label classification (HMC) problem where each gene can belong to more than one functional class simultaneously, while classes are structured in the form of hierarchy. HMC is becoming a necessity in many domains of applications as well.
Currently, we propose Crowding niching-Adaptive Mutation (CAM) as a new method for solving Hierarchical multi-label gene function prediction problem. The classification in CAM-HMC is structured in three different phases. In the first phase, a full cyclic evolutionary crowding algorithm based on new definition of distance between two individuals, and adaptive mutation is applied in order to find classification rules. In the second phase, all the examples which are covered by these rules are removed from the training data. A sequential procedure between these two phases helps us to find all the CAM-HMC rules for covering training examples. In the third phase, consequent of rules (probability of coverage of each rule for each hierarchical class) are used for classification of new set of data.
