We use approximate entropy and hydrophobicity patterns to predict G-protein-coupled receptors. Adaboost classifier is adopted as the prediction engine. A low homology dataset is used to validate the proposed method. Compared with the results reported, the successful rate is encouraging. The source code is written by Matlab.
