Summary of "Protein Structure Prediction Using Population-based Algorithm Guided by Information Entropy."

Ab initio protein structure prediction is one of the most challenging problems in computational biology. Multistage algorithms are widely used in ab initio protein structure prediction. The different computational costs of a multistage algorithm for different proteins are important to be considered. In this study, a population-based algorithm guided by information entropy (PAIE), which includes exploration and exploitation stages, is proposed for protein structure prediction. In PAIE, an entropy-based stage switch strategy is designed to switch from the exploration stage to the exploitation stage. Torsion angle statistical information is also deduced from the first stage and employed to enhance the exploitation in the second stage. Results indicate that an improvement in the performance of protein structure prediction in a benchmark of 30 proteins and 17 other free modeling targets in CASP.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A quantitative prediction of the biological, ecotoxicological or pharmaceutical activity of a molecule. It is based upon structure and activity information gathered from a series of similar compounds.

Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.

A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.

Studies in which a number of subjects are selected from all subjects in a defined population. Conclusions based on sample results may be attributed only to the population sampled.
