Paper Abstract

The three dimensional structure of a protein affects the structural, functional and biological characteristics of the various cells and genes significantly. Therefore, prediction of the structure of a protein is the key to understanding the biological functions of proteins. In this paper, a new hybrid neural network has been proposed for predicting protein secondary structure. A new encoding scheme for representing amino acid protein sequences has also been designed which greatly reduces the convergence time of the prediction process.
