© 2021 IEEE.This paper presents a Deep Neural network (DNN) system that uses a large set of geometric and categorical features for classification of secondary structure elements (SSEs) in the protein's trace that consists of Calpha atoms on the backbone. A systematical approach is implemented for classification of protein SSE problem. This approach consists of two network architecture search (NAS) algorithms for selecting (1) network architecture and layer connectivity, and (2) regularization parameters. Each algorithm uses a different search space and they are used in succession to develop a DNN. The DNN system generates over 93% classification rate on average for multiple test sets without any post processing for amino acid configurations.

Deep learning for prediction of drug-target interaction space and protein functions
Rifaioğlu, Ahmet Süreyya; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
With the advancement of sequencing and high-throughput screening technologies, large amount of sequence and compound data have been accumulated in biological and chemical databases. However, only small number of proteins and compounds have been annotated by wet-lab experiments due to the huge compound and chemical space. Therefore, computational methods have been developed to annotate protein and compound space. In this thesis, we describe the design and implementation of several methods for accurate drug-t...
Neural networks with piecewise constant argument and impact activation
Yılmaz, Enes; Akhmet, Marat; Department of Scientific Computing (2011)
This dissertation addresses the new models in mathematical neuroscience: artificial neural networks, which have many similarities with the structure of human brain and the functions of cells by electronic circuits. The networks have been investigated due to their extensive applications in classification of patterns, associative memories, image processing, artificial intelligence, signal processing and optimization problems. These applications depend crucially on the dynamical behaviors of the networks. In t...
Deep learning for the classification of bipolar disorder using fNIRS measurements
Evgin, Haluk Barkın; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-2-3)
Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neural imaging method that is proved to be prominent in the classification of psychiatric disorders, and assertive accuracy results are being obtained using fNIRS. High temporal resolution, feasibility, and partial endurance to head movements are the traits that are highlighting fNIRS among other imaging methods. fNIRS data is a one dimensional multi-channeled time series. In this thesis, bipolar disorder is classified using some state of the art deep learn...
Fast and accurate modeling of protein-protein interactions by combining template-interface-based docking with flexible refinement
Tunçbağ, Nurcan; NUSSINOV, Ruth; Gursoy, Attila (2012-04-01)
The similarity between folding and binding led us to posit the concept that the number of proteinprotein interface motifs in nature is limited, and interacting protein pairs can use similar interface architectures repeatedly, even if their global folds completely vary. Thus, known proteinprotein interface architectures can be used to model the complexes between two target proteins on the proteome scale, even if their global structures differ. This powerful concept is combined with a flexible refinement and ...
Artificial-neural-network prediction of hexagonal lattice parameters for non-stoichiometric apatites
Kockan, Umit; Ozturk, Fahrettin; Evis, Zafer (2014-01-01)
In this study, hexagonal lattice parameters (a and c) and unit-cell volumes of non-stoichiometric apatites of M-10(TO4)(6)X-2 are predicted from their ionic radii with artificial neural networks. A multilayer-perceptron network is used for training. The results indicate that the Bayesian regularization method with four neurons in the hidden layer with a tansig activation function and one neuron in the output layer with a purelin function gives the best results. It is found that the errors for the predicted ...
