|Title:||Application of support vector machine to prediction of cross-reactive allergens and recognition of viral sequences||Authors:||MUH HON CHENG||Keywords:||support vector machine, allergen, prediction, codon usage indices, virus, pairwise||Issue Date:||6-May-2009||Citation:||MUH HON CHENG (2009-05-06). Application of support vector machine to prediction of cross-reactive allergens and recognition of viral sequences. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The generalization property of support vector machine and the choice of feature vectors are important in determining the success of a classifier. Described in this paper are two novel prediction methods utilizing support vector machines: 1. AllerHunter, a cross-reactive allergen prediction based on pairwise sequence similarity, and 2. VIPR, a viral sequence prediction method based on codon usage indices. AllerHunter performs significantly better (sensitivity=88.4%; specificity to allergen-like putative non-allergen=91.4%; specificity to divergent putative non-allergen=100%) than leading cross-reactive allergen prediction methods to date. VIPR is a unique tool that lacks comparison to date(sensitivity=90.5%; specificity=94.1%), which complements existing identification methods by suggesting a potential viral origin of sequences in samples.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/15918|
