Elucidating the interaction relationship between target proteins and all drugs is critical for the discovery of new drug targets. However, it is a big challenge to integrate and optimize different feature information into one single “knowledge view” for drug-target interaction prediction. In this article, a feature selection method was proposed to rank the original feature sets. Then, an improved bipartite learning graph method was used to predict four types of drug-target datasets based on the optimized feature subsets. The crossvalidation results demonstrate that the proposed method can provide superior performance than previous method on four classes of drug target families.
