Graphical Abstract:


Protein folding, prediction of protein structure and functions are most important problems in bioinformatics. The protein fold process mainly reflects in the kinetic order of folding. Predicting the structural classes of low-homology protein is a difficult problem in the prediction of protein structure. In order to understanding the mechanism of programmed cell death, it is very necessary to obtain the information about subcellular locations and functions of apoptosis proteins. Predicting protein subnuclear localizations is a challenging problem which is harder than predicting protein subcellular locations. Predicting membrane protein types is related to the structure and function of proteins. In this review, we introduce some applications of nonlinear science methods and support vector machine methods to the above protein problems. The nonlinear science methods including the horizontal visibility network, kernel method, recurrence quantification analysis, global descriptor, Lempel-Ziv complexity, and Hilbert-Huang transform are used to extract features in these approaches.

Keywords: Nonlinear science methods, prediction of kinetic order of protein folding, prediction of membrane protein types, prediction of protein structural classes, prediction of protein subcellular locations, prediction of protein subnuclear localizations, support vector machine.
